Argentine paleontologists have discovered the largely intact skeleton of a young titanosaurus that lived 71 million years ago. "What's extraordinary about this is that the remains were articulated, as if the animal had fallen or lain down and remained that way.

There were no signs that it was preyed on," local media reported geologist and paleontologist Bernardo Gonzalez Riga as saying.

I thought I'd post an image, as that picture is kinda miss-leading, makes it appear it has carnivorus teeth :lol:

Thanks for the picture it put things into perspective a little better. I first thought it was a small raptor like creature. Who knows what other fossils we will find in the future. :tu:

yeah, thanks for the pic...the titanosaurus skull and teeth are greatly misleading...course I do wonder what the brainstorming sessions would be like, naming their respective sub species and whatnot? "uhhh, gigantosaurus...nahhh, let's go for the wow factor here....supermassivemegahuuuugeosaurus...less wow...ok..."

Yeah, my mind shouldn't be allowed to wander...
