Argentinosaurus is the heaviest and largest of all Sauropods which ever inhabited planet Earth. It lived in South America territory during the Cretaceous period. An Argentinian farmer discovered the first Argentinosaurus fossils in 1987 near the Neuquén Province. The landowner was confused having messed the huge dinosaur thighbone with a tree branch. Later he recovered a huge dinosaur vertebra about 1.59 metres high similar to the height of 15-16 year old teenager. .

With a height of 6 metres , length of 30 metres and 100 tonnes weight Argentinosaurus was a real titan amongst reptiles. Only Supersaurus, Ultrasaurus and Seismosaurus could rival it, however, Argentinosaurus was muchheavier. .

The giant sauropod consumed vegetation, moved on four limbs, had a long tail and neck which was crowned with a small head. Two causes of the reptile’s mammoth size were anatomy and high oxygen concentration in the atmosphere. The Argentinosaurus moved at up to 8 km/h speed, faster than the average human walking speed (4-5 km/h).
