Giant dinosaur bone found in southwestern France

Giant dinosaur bone found in southwestern FranceThe thigh bone of a giant dinosaur was found this week by French paleontologists at an excavation site in southwestern France where remains of some of the largest animals that ever lived on land have been dug up since 2010. The two-meter long femur at the Angeac-Charente site is thought to have belonged to a sauropod, herbivorous dinosaurs with long necks and tails which were widespread in the late Jurassic era, over 140 million years ago. “This is a major discovery,” Ronan Allain, a paleontologist at the National History Museum of Paris told Reuters.
