Argentinosaurus may have been the largest dinosaur ever, aside from AmphicoeliasPatagotitan and several other sauropods. Like some of the other really huge dinosaurs, such as Supersaurus, little fossils of Argentinosaurus have been found, so it is hard to tell exactly what it may have looked like in life. The only certain thing is that it was a giant, growing 39 meters long at longest, had long-neck, and was a herbivore. Argentinosaurus was so large that it would require massive amounts of food each day to beat ts fast metabolism. But it was not always like that; Argentinosaurus babies would start out small, and would be easy prey for larger dinosaurs. They would be abandoned since the evolutionary tactic would be to have so many chicks that predators could not eat them all.

Argentinosaurus was discovered by a retired oil worker and was formally described in 1993. The few bones include hipbones, backbones, and a tibia (lower leg bone). One vertebra was over four feet (1.3 m) tall and the tibia was 58 inches (155 cm) long. A number of prominent scientists have stated that this member of the South American titanosaur family was the largest dinosaur that ever lived.[1]
