The skeleton of what could be a new dinosaur species - a giant, Patagonian plant-eater - has been uncovered in Argentina. At more than 105 feet, it is among the largest ever found, scientists said Monday.
Scientists from Argentina and Brazil said the Patagonian dinosaur appears to represent a previously unknown species because of the unique structure of its neck. They named it Futalognkosaurus dukei
after the Mapuche Indian words for "giant" and "chief," and for Duke Energy Argentina, which helped fund the skeleton's excavation.
