A recent discovery may be the largest dinosaur so far found:

It weighed
​76 tons, ​
as much as the Space Shuttle
was 20 feet high at the shoulders and was 122 feet long and lived about 100
million years ago. Other very large dinosaurs have been found before but
this fossil is incredibly complete, in fact they were able to make what's
been called  “the most complete anatomic reconstruction of any large
terrestrial herbivore in the planet’s history"
. I don't know why ​I find all this so fascinating but when I was a kid I
was a sucker for
​ movies. Take a look at this picture to get a sense of the scale of this


And they say this thing was
​just ​
a juvenile not yet fully grown!  I want to go to Jurassic Park, I'll take
my chances with the T Rex getting loose.
