Scientists digitally reconstruct the steps of the largest animal to have ever walked the planet the Argentinosaurus.

The team from the University of Manchester laser-scanned the skeleton of the enormous Cretaceous-era dinosaur in order to try and map its walking and running movements.

From a bio-mechanical pov I don't like the simulation having the creature walk with two feet off the ground at once - especially not both feet on the same side of the beast. Nice that they are researching, but I think it's back to the drawing board for this particular simulation.

They can say as ...one of the largest animal to have ever walked the planet the Argentinosaurus. There might be a dinosaur bigger than that.Nature always have surprises.
