The Biggest Dinosaur In The World Has Been Named And It's Not Just 'Big Dino'

By

In 2012, researchers found a dinosaur skeleton in Argentina that changed their ideas about what the biggest land-walking creature ever to roam our planet looked liked. On Tuesday, their findings were published, reports the National Post. Diego Pol of the Egidio Feruglio paleontology museum in Argentina, and co-author of the study, says the skeleton belonged to a group of dinosaurs called titanosaurs, but this particular branch of the family tree "went crazy in size."

Scientists have finally revealed this behemoth's name: Patagotitan mayorum, which includes a reference to the region it was found (Patagonia) and the Greek word titan, which if you couldn't guess, means "big."
