The name is not much impressive and it is not bigger than Argentinosaurus.

The dinosaur, whose scientific name means "fear nothing" and is nicknamed "Dread," is described in the latest issue of Scientific Reports. Dread measured 85 feet long and weighed about 65 tons

I don't think I would fear anything either if I was that size :lol:

There's a video in this link -

Yeah, but I hope we don't get a Bismarckosaurus etc. This battleship-metaphors **** just has to go.

And maybe in the future, when we could travel to distant planets we found one with at size of our sun, and we dig up long dead beasts with lengths and widths of like 6 kilometers, and weighs some 85 million metric tons. Then we probably have names like Galaxyosaurus etc.

It looks like the thing just didn't know to stop growing and killed itself being too big.
