Scientists officially announced the discovery of a new dinosaur, and if there's one takeaway here, it's that this thing was huge.
Ken Lacovara via Drexel University: "Everything about this dinosaur is giant: the femur is six feet tall, the upper arm bone, the humerus, is almost as tall as I am, the tail bones are gargantuan with huge muscle scars."
The team at Drexel University — which coincidentally has another huge lizard as a mascot — spent four years unearthing the bones of the huge dinosaur, which they named Dreadnoughtus, meaning it feared nothing.
