Meet Dreadnoughtus schrani, the LARGEST and most complete titanosaur discovered to date. The multinational team discovered the well preserved remains – which included muscle and tendon tissues – in Argentina. The larger of the two individuals found has a projected mass of 59 tons and length of 26 meters. Strictly an herbivore, Dreadnoughtus schrani had a “weaponized tail” for defense though all known predators in the Upper Cretaceous when the titanosaur lived would have been dwarfed by the creatures’ size.(Concept illustration of Dreadnoughtus schrani.
