New Dinosaur Species Discovered

ARGENTINA --  A jaw-dropping find in Argentina, where the bones of a
dinosaur were discovered.

Scientists believe it is the largest creature ever to walk the earth.

A local farm worker stumbeld on the remains and palaeontologists dug it up.

Scientists concluded the beast was 65 feet tall and 130 feet long when it roamed the earth.

They estimate it likely weighed in at 77-tons, as heavy as 14 African
elephants and seven tons heavier than the previous record holder.

Based on the age of the rocks where the bones were found,
scientists say the plant-eater lived in the forest of Patagonia about 100-million years ago.

It's believed to be a new species of Titanosaur, an enormous
herbivore.
