    Just thought I would share this interesting news here :) 

    ¨New fossils found in Argentina represent the most complete giant sauropod dinosaur ever discovered.

    Scientists say they have 70% of the key bones needed to fully describe the creature, Dreadnoughtus schrani

    My dad told me about this, and then we watched it on the news. It's amazing, isn't it?

    Should've just left it at "Dreadnought" Instead of "Dreadnoughtus." Dreadnought just sounds so much cooler.

    Good to see this thing has a name to it now, my estimates for its size were right on the money

    It's definitely a monster, I too wonder how big it could have got, I recently read it was growing fast at the time it was killed :)

    The Cervical vertebrate weren't fully fused at the time of its death, but were pretty close. That tells us this thing was nearing maturity, and as seen in other sauropods, Dreadnoughtus was about to put on some serious weight. It's a titanosaur, and basing off of Argentinosaurus(even though we don't have an established growth rate for most sauropods) this thing would have weighed ~165-180 tons when it was fully mature, a beast indeed

    ´´Drexel University professor Ken Lacovara has recently unveiled a new supermassive dinosaur species he discovered and unearthed with his team between 2005 and 2009. Weighing in at nearly 65 tons, Dreadnoughtus schrani is the largest land animal ever found of calculable mass and also by far one of the most complete skeletons ever found for a dinosaur in this mass range''

    Why can't we have any cool dinosaur discovries in Oklahome? We havethe High Lands where the Black Mesa is and barely anyone around. Wh does no one like Oklahoma? We're a very diverse state over here. We have the High Lands, a mini-desert, forests, mountains, plains, and lots of man-made lakes and natural rivers.

    I think the reason that JP4 doesnt feature Super Giant Sauropods is the basic fact that they would eat and probably kill every tree on the Island. These giants reached over 80,000kgs and would eat half a tonne a day. Still would love to see a Supersaurus, or Brachiasaur because they are awsome. Also how would you fence them in?

    Silver_Falcon,

     

    Because Games Workshop will sue the scientists for naming their dino after their Warhammer 40K Space Marine unit :D

     

    Awesome discovery by the way! Thumbs up!
