Uncle Banana’s Science Corner – Biggest Dinosaur – EVER
Scientists have discovered the bones of the largest animal ever to walk the earth. It was a giant dinosaur, called a Dreadnoughtus, thought to have lived, in what is now Argentina, between 65 and 85 million years ago.
How big was it? A full grown African elephant weighs around 15,000 pounds. An empty 737 airliner weighs about 100,000 pounds. The Dreadnoughtus scientists are examining weighed about 130,000 pounds. And was still growing.
That's right - it was still a teenager. They know that because they found the fossilized cellphone that it refused to get off of when the asteroid hit.
