Greeting the World's Largest Dinosaur, Then and Now


Then, 1905:

Now: "Dreadnoughtus schrani"

Then: "Tyrannosaurus Rex"

Now: It stood two stories high at the shoulder. Its tail was almost as long as a city bus. And it tipped the scales at some 65 tons – heavier than a fully loaded semi-truck.

Meet Dreadnoughtus schrani, a newly discovered dinosaur and one of the most massive land animals of all time. And it's not just a heavyweight. Never before has anyone found so many representative pieces of a super-large dinosaur.
