Science Saturday III: Bigger Than T Rex

What would Science Saturday be without a tall dinosaur tale?

This one is a lulu, or rather a Mapusaurus roseae.

Traces of this newly found dinosaur species, one of the largest known carnivores and bigger than the fabled Tyranosaurus rex, has been located in Patagonia, where reptilian giants seem to have thrived 100 million years ago.

A bone analysis bones showed that an adult exceeded 40 feet in length.

The New York Times has more here.
