Talk about bringing home the bacon!
Spanish paleontologists found part of a femur and feet from three individuals of a new titanosaur species.
Despite most of the 122-million-year-old beast being MIA, the leg bones were so different than known dinos that the researchers named their new discovery Garumbatitan morellensis.
Sorting through one of Europe’s best sauropod bone sites, the team determined G. morellensis was among four giant species that lived in the area.
Its ties to dinosaurs on other continents show more movement between landmasses than thought when Pangea was breaking up.
