Latest Titanosaurs Stories
For the second time this month, researchers have discovered a massive new type of dinosaur – a species of titanosaur known as Rukwatitan bisepultus which reportedly weighed as much as several elephants.
A gigantic and remarkably complete dinosaur skeleton belongs to a new species that was 85 foot long and weighed a reported 65 tons during its lifetime, according to new research appearing in the September 4 online edition of the journal Scientific Reports.
A 130-foot long, 65-foot tall, 180,000-pound dinosaur believed to have been the largest creature ever to walk the Earth has been discovered by an agricultural worker in Argentina.
A group of paleontologists from the University of Pennsylvania have described a colossal dinosaur recently discovered in China. The dinosaur is a 60-foot-long sauropod from the Early Cretaceous.
Researchers have reconstructed one of the world’s largest dinosaurs, allowing the creature to take its first steps in over 94 million years.
A new analysis of ostriches reveals that a computer model of long-necked sauropods used to simulate the dinosaurs' movements, featured in BBC's Walking with Dinosaurs and the focus of an installation at the American Museum of Natural History, New York, does not correctly reconstruct how flexible their necks were.
A pair of U.K. biologists has revived an older and heavily debated theory that suggests sauropod dinosaurs reached their massive sizes due to the plants that they ate.
Remains of a new specimen of titanosaur, a group of plant-eating dinosaurs with extremely long necks and tails, have been found for the first time on what is now Antarctica, and come from a time when the frozen continent was warmer and teemed with plant life.
For the first time, the presence of large bodied herbivorous dinosaurs in Antarctica has been recorded.
New research from Montana State University's Museum of the Rockies and the State Museum of Pennsylvania has unveiled enormous bones from North America's biggest dinosaur.
Sauroposeidon, meaning “earthquake god lizard,” is a genus of sauropods dinosaur from the Aptian and Albian ages of the Early Cretaceous Period (110 million years ago). It was discovered in the southeast region of Atoka County, Oklahoma, not far from the border of Texas, in a claystone outcrop. The fossils were initially misidentified as pieces of petrified wood when they were found in 1994. A more detailed analysis in 1999 revealed they were truly dinosaurian bones. They were formally...
Tastavinsaurus, meaning "Tastavins River lizard," is a genus of sauropod dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous Period of what is now Spain. It belongs to the family Titanosauriformes, which is one of the largest sauropod groups, and also contains most of the largest dinosaurs to ever walk the planet. The type species, T. sanzi, is named in honor of Spanish paleontologist Jose Luis Sanz. Tastavinsaurus is known from a partial skeleton. Photo Copyright and Credit
Paralititan, meaning "near sea titan", is a genus of titanosaurian sauropod dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period of what is now Egypt. It was the discovered in the Bahariya Formation in 1935. The type species, P. stromeri, was named in 2001 to honor Ernst Stromer von Reichenbach, a German paleontologist who discovered dinosaurs in this area in the early 1900s. The humerus of Paralititan is 5.5 feet long, much longer than other known Cretaceous sauropod. Little is known of Paralititan,...
Adamantisaurus, meaning "Adamantina lizard", is a genus of titanosaurian sauropod dinosaur from the Turonian-Maastrichtian stages of the Late Cretaceous Period (93 to 70 million years ago). It lived in what is now South America. It was discovered in the Adamantina Formation in the Bauru Group of geologic formations. The remains of Adamantisaurus were first mentioned in 1959, but the dinosaur was not named until 2006 by Brazilian paleontologists Rodrigo Santucci and Reinaldo Bertini. It...
Rinconsaurus is a genus of sauropod dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period. It lived in what is now Argentina. It was discovered in 1997 in the Neuquen province of Argentina. It was described by Calvo and Riga in 2003, based on three incomplete skeletons that included the vertebrae, limbs, scapula, hips, and several ribs. Some cranial fragments and a few teeth have also been found. The type species is R. caudamirus. The genus was named for the location of the discovery: RincÃ³n de los...
