” The largest creature to have ever walked the earth – a dinosaur measuring 130 feet and weighing 77 tonnes – has been discovered in Argentina, palaeontologists have said.

  Its gigantic bones were found by a local farm worker in a desert in Patagonia, the southern Argentine region that has yielded many important dinosaur discoveries.

  Based on the size of the thigh bones – taller than an average man – the dinosaur would have been 130 feet long and 65ft tall, scientists said.

  Its calculated 77-tonne weight would have made it as heavy as 14 African elephants, beating the previous record holder, Argentinosaurus, by some seven tonnes.”
