IN THE WORLD
In 2013, a team of scientists led by MEF researchers found the remains of a new species of dinosaur from 95 million years ago; possibly the greatest who ever lived in our planet. This exceptional discovery not only stands out thanks to the dimensions and quantity of the fossils found, but also for its unusual state of preservation.
Seven huge herbivorous dinosaurs, perhaps the biggest creatures that walked the Earth, were found at a single site in the province of Chubut (Argentina). The finding surprised scientists around the world that, until now, only knew the anatomy of these giants based on poor remains of few species.
