Paleontologists from the Museum of Paleontology Egidio Feruglio have unearthed around 150 fossilized dinosaur bones, representing seven of what's believed to be the largest known dinosaur to have ever walked the Earth, in the desert about 135 miles west of the city of Trelew in Argentina. The seven are currently thought to be a new species of titanosaur, a group of particularly tall and heavy dinosaur herbivores.

This theropod here (of T-Rex fame) was found in Bavaria, which paleontologists determined to be 98% intact. For reference, the 80% completeness of the famous T-Rex Sue is considered a fantastic treat. There are even remnants of hair (proto-feathers) and some skin (cue Jurassic Park theme). Scientists are still determining if the animal is a juvenile or a new species entirely. Me, I'm still determining whether or not this thing would be capable of opening doors and figuring out if my home is velociraptor-proof.
