It might not be the tallest dinosaur ever, but it sure has the funniest name.
Scientists think they have found a new species of giant plant-eating dinosaur, Futalognkosaurus dukei, that would have roamed the earth some 80m years ago.
It would have measured at least 32m (105ft) in height, making it one of the tallest dinosaurs ever found, Argentine and Brazilian palaeontologists say. The skeleton showed signs that its owner had been eaten by predators.
The excavation site in Argentina has yielded a series of specimens since the first fossils were found there in 2000. The skeleton found in Patagonia appears to represent a previously unknown species because of the unique structure of its neck.
Its name (pronounced foo-ta-long-koh-sohr-us) derives from the Mapuche Indian words for “giant chief of the lizards” and for Duke Energy Argentina, a company which helped fund the its excavation.
