Bones found in Patagonian quarry belonged to titanosaurs

A cast of the dinosaur's skeleton is already on display at the American Museum of Natural History. It's so big that the dinosaur's head sticks out into a hallway at the New York museum. Vertebrae and rib bones were among the finds discovered at the quarry at La Flecha ranch, Chubut Province, Argentina, in 2013, and a new analysis suggests they belonged to six dinosaurs. A study of the remains suggests that 'Patagotitan mayorum' (inset image) weighed around 62 tonnes and measured more than 115ft (35m) from nose to tail. Scientists think the fossils belonged to at least six different individuals that died in a floodplain region before being preserved in mud. The titanosaur lived 100 million years ago during the Cretaceous period and was a sauropod, a huge plant-eater with a long tail and neck that stood on four legs. The discovery is the first indication that titanosaurs engaged in social activity.
