The skeleton of a huge dinosaur discovered in Australia 15 years ago turned out to be a species that has never been discovered before. Paleontologists say that the new dinosaur species is one of the largest dinosaurs in the history of the earth.
This giant named Australotitan cooperensis is a member of the Titansaurus family that lived between 92 and 96 million years ago. It is believed that the animal is 5 to 6.5 meters high and 25 to 30 meters long-the same height as a two-story building. When the Australian continent was still connected to Antarctica, herbivores lived in Australia.
Australian paleontologists are excited about this discovery:
It is the largest dinosaur species ever discovered in Australia. In the world, this animal ranks in the top five among the largest species.He probably has A small cup, Long neck and tail and strong legs.
As early as 2006, the fossil skeleton of a dinosaur was discovered on a farm in Queensland, where the animal was nicknamed Cooper. After a long period of research, including 3D scanning, it was determined that it was a new dinosaur species.Research results have been published in scientific journals Accompany.
More dinosaur remains have been found in unexplored areas. Researchers hope to have more special discoveries, such as fossils of carnivores, because herbivores that have now been identified can also be prey.
