It's official, long-necked sauropod dinosaurs once roamed every continent on Earth including now-frigid Antarctica.
The discovery of a single sauropod vertebra on James Ross Island in Antarctica reveals that these behemoths, which included Diplodocus, Brachiosaurus and Apatosaurus, lived on the continent in the upper Cretaceous Period about 100 million years ago.

No it doesn’t...it proves a dinosaur died and is frozen in the ice some time back. I will most likely be around to haul it out, but I just love how they make the instant claims of “100 million years” as if saying it over and over proves it.

Thanks Captain Beyond for the ping, thanks Altariel for the topic.
It shows that a dinosaur died a hundred million years ago, but I just love how you make the instant claims of “some time back” as if saying it over and over proves it.
It’ll be interesting to see how many more dinosaur discoveries come out of Antarctica.
Shouldn’t we ping sauropod to this thread?
Right....as if its accurate huh? LOL....whats “Proven” is nothing other than it was there. Get over it.
I wouldn’t expect many discoveries considering how little of the land area is ice free.
IN Texas our mantra is “long live long necks”.
Oh...this is about dinosaurs? Never mind.
