Huge New Sauropod
June 04, 2001
The partial skeleton of what may be the second most massive dinosaur ever unearthed was announced in the June 1, 2001 issue of the journal Science. The Egyptian dinosaur is a new species of titanosaurid, the group of long-necked, long-tailed, plant-eaters that includes some of the largest land animals ever. Dubbed Paralititan stromeri, or "Tidal Giant," scientists estimate it was up to 100 feet long and weighed 75 to 80 tons.
