Paleontology Foundation Discovers Fattest Dinosaurian To Date...

WASHINGTON — "The fossil bones of what may have been Europe's largest animal ever, a new type of dinosaur, have been discovered in Spain.

Discovery of the sauropod, estimated to have weighed between 40 and 48 tons, is reported in Friday's issue of the journal Science.

Named Turiasaurus riodevensis, the animal lived in the Teruel area of what is now Spain in the late Jurassic period, about 150 million years ago."
