New Dinosaur Found In Argentina Said To Be Largest Beast Ever To Walk The Earth…On Four Legs


Weighing in at 130,000 pounds, 30 feet tall and 85 feet long, meet Dreadnoughtus.

The Dreadnoughtus, which means “fears (almost) nothing,” is the first of this species and most complete ever found of this group of dinosaurs known as titanosaurs. Although it was a plant-eater, a healthy Dreadnoughtus likely had no real issues with predators due to its intimidating size and muscular, weaponized tail.

“How do you come up with a body size that is so enormous when you’re a terrestrial animal?” Luis Chiappe, director of the National History Museum of Los Angeles’s Dinosaur Institute, told the Washington Post. “You need to have a structural design that allows you to support a body like that, and you have to be potentially adapted to eat 24 hours a day, nonstop.”

    Flotusauruis not a scientifically acceptable classification… Anew species was discovered this year, Brontomerus, which translates as “thunder thighs” ,,name fits .
