From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Scientists in Spain have found the fossilized remains of one of the largest animals ever to walk the Earth, a gargantuan plant-eating dinosaur up to 125 feet long and weighing as much as seven elephants, according to a report in the journal Science.

Turiasaurus riodevensis, named for the region and village in Spain where it was found, lived about 145 million years ago and was a sauropod, according to the team of researchers led by Rafael Royo-Torres of the Joint Paleontology Foundation Teruel-Dinopolis. It is the largest dinosaur ever found in Europe.
