Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Paleontologists in Argentina's remote Patagonia region have discovered fossils of what may be the largest dinosaur ever.

The creature is believed to be a new species of Titanosaur, a long-necked, long-tailed sauropod that walked on four legs and lived some 95 million years ago in the Cretaceous Period.

Researchers say the plant-eating dinosaur weighed the equivalent of more than 14 African elephants, or about 100 tonnes, and stretched up to 40 meters (130 feet) in length.

You'd think if it was that big they would have found it sooner.

There weren't many bones left. Seems Titanosaur steaks were all the rave in Bedrock, and the bones were a favorite of Dino.
