New Giant Dinosaur Species found in Australia
Researchers in Australia have uncovered skeletons of a previously unknown dinosaur species that is the largest dinosaur species ever discovered on the continent.
The new species was named Australotitan Cooperensis and reportedly lived during the Cretaceous period, between 92 - 96 million years, when Australia was still associated to the Antarctic. The herbivore Australotitan cooperensis ranged in height from 5 to 6.5 meters and in length from 25 to 30 meters.
The researchers say that Australotitan cooperensis is one of the 15 largest dinosaur species known to date worldwide. Scientists still do not know exactly which species are the largest. You can refer to some of the species that aspire to the title in the following table.
