Scientists have confirmed the discovery of one of the largest dinosaur families in the world, more than ten years after a number of pastoralists discovered the bones of an extinct species for the first time.
A research paper published on Monday stated that the dinosaur - a sauropod - lived in the Cretaceous period, between 92 million and 96 million years ago, when Australia was connected to Antarctica.
According to paleontologists' estimates, the height of the dinosaur was between five and six and a half meters, while its length ranged between 25 and 30 meters, which means that it was the length of a basketball court and the height of a two-story building.
