A mini titanosaur? new species is one of the smallest ever found

Recommended Posts

A new species of titanosaur has been described from Argentina. Found in rocks dating back almost 70 million years, the mini job has been named Titanomachya gimenezi and was 10 times smaller than its largest titanosaur relatives, making it one of the smallest ever described.

The fossils were retrieved from Chubut Province in Patagonian Argentina where scientists have been digging in La Colonia Formation. There, they uncovered forelimbs, hindlimbs, and fragments of ribs and vertebrae of the mystery titanosaur species – marking the first sauropod from La Colonia Formation ever to be recognized.
