Hey everyone, BBC News are reporting today that a new dinosaur in Argentina has been discovered. It was dug up by a team  of palentologists led by Dr Jose Luis Carballido and Dr Diego Pol from the Museum of Palaeontology Egidio Feruglio. It is believed to be a new species of Titanosaur. The Titanosaurs were large herbivores from the late Cretaceous peroid. Over 150 bones have been discovred. The measurements are not official, but based on the measurement methods employed, the dinosaur is 130 feet in length and 65 feet in height, beating Argentinosaurus for the spot of the largest dinosaur. Argentinosaurus only had a few bones to estimate its size from, but this dinosaur had its measruements taken from the huge supply of bones.

 There are pictures from the excavation in the article. I won't ruin the suprise for you. Read the article. It is truly fascinating.

Very interesting indeed. If we take Bruhatkyosaurus and Amphicoelias out of the competition because they were very fragmentary, then this new titanosaur takes the prize for largest known dinosaur.

Keep in mind that many people have died for their beliefs; it's actually quite common. The real courage is in living and suffering for what you believe in. -Brom-

with these giant herbivores, comes those who predate on them. Maybe a enormous theropod is waiting to be uncovered nearby...interesting stuff and great find. Hopefully it's scientifically described soon

@Carnosaur, I agree. It is only a matter of time before scientists discover an even larger predator!

I always thought the largest predators would be in the Jurassic since giant herbivores were abundant enough for predators to grow to thier size.

Interesting. Titanosaurs were pretty bulky animals, so I'd imagine a 130 ft species would weigh a good 120-150 tons.
