The Carnegie Museum has released this illustration by Mark Klinger of Dreadnoughtus schrani (2014) following the discovery of a 70-per-cent-complete fossil in Argentina. It measured the length of two London buses end to end and weighed almost 60 tonnes. And it was still growing when it died! Its size suggested the name Dreadnoughtus, meaning to fear nothing. This specimen died in a flood. It offers new insights into the titanosaurs (CLICK).
