    Fossilised bones of dinosaur believed to be the largest creature ever to walk the Earth has been unearthed in Argentina, palaeontologists say.

    Based on its huge thigh bones, it was 40m (130ft) long and 20m (65ft) tall.

    Weighing in at 77 tonnes, it was as heavy as 14 African elephants, and seven tonnes heavier than the previous record holder, Argentinosaurus.

    Scientists believe it is a new species of titanosaur - an enormous herbivore dating from the Late Cretaceous period.

    A local farm worker first stumbled on the remains in the desert near La Flecha, about 250km (135 miles) west of Trelew, Patagonia.

    Came into the thread hoping they found remains of real Godzilla. I was deeply disappointed.

    Blue whales may not be longer but they're certainly heavier (170 tonnes). XD

    Mammals still win! :D
