Massive 500kg bone from ‘world’s biggest dinosaur’ found in France

July 26, 2019

Dinosaur hunters have uncovered a two-metre thigh bone likely belonging to a giant sauropod in France.

The enormous femur was dug up in a fossil-rich area in Charente and dates back 140 million years, The Sun reported.

Sauropods are the largest herbivorous dinosaurs known to date — and include Diplodocus, Brachiosaurus and Brontosaurus.

They first appeared in the late Triassic Period, but this particular dino is from a Jurassic-era sauropod.
