Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, October 15, 2007
(AP) The skeleton of what's believed to be a new dinosaur species - a 105-foot plant-eater that is among the largest dinosaurs ever found - has been uncovered in Argentina, scientists said Monday.
Scientists from Argentina and Brazil said the Patagonian dinosaur appears to represent a previously unknown species of Titanosaur because of the unique structure of its neck. They named it Futalognkosaurus dukei after the Mapuche Indian words for "giant" and "chief," and for Duke Energy Argentina, which helped fund the skeleton's excavation.

I just they aged it properly before they buried it so we don’t have another controversy like the pterodactyl.
Another one! Is it related to the one in last week’s thread?
Of interest? ping
Woops, you are right, it was posted last week
under a different (AP?) title. Sorry everyone!
should be: 105Footalongasaurus dukei
or just ‘damnbigosaurus’
and as for the Titanosaurs...guess they were sunk from the get-go.
The genetic search function gives spotty results.
Didn’t know Hugo Chavez was descended from a long line of plant eaters...big enough thought...
New species means new theories. Open up that gap book. Gotta find a spot for it.
That is because of the advanced economics of North America. After being dug up, scientific testing of the buried bondisaurus indicated that although roughly normal size, its skeleton supported an abnormally large musculature. *Spectrographic analysis indicates some sort of substance was used.
Duke tosses bones to unuseful yapping idiots.
Gotta love it!
You are a wordsmith.
I believe the ending means "side of slaw", which of course is nuts. You want a "side of cheese fries". No wonder they went extinct.
Heck, that is nothing, I passed by the site of the bones of another ancient dinosaur skeleton, rather then call for a professional assesment I examined the carcass myself..
As I closed on the fossil, it had writing on it....
New York Times, Weekend Edition..
I named it thusly...Mediaus Narccissus
I'm not familiar with the dactyl controversy
Sounds like something from South Park episode.
>>I just they aged it properly before they buried it so we dont have another controversy like the pterodactyl.
There are a couple of pictures floating around of people who seem to have found a pterodactyl. I have always assumed that whoever fakes the ages of those dinosaur fossils just screwed up.
Not all the aging controversies are accidental. Piltdown Man was a deliberate, evolutionist-created hoax. Something about job security—or the “don’t confuse me with facts, my mind’s made up” attitude.
Lots of gaps in the ‘gap book’ to fill.
Could this be one of the creatures mentioned in the Book of Job? Check out the reference to the huge tail.
Shouldn't this have been found in Chile instead of Argentina?
I’ll give you a hint - same BS twisting of science that surrounds the controversy around the Shroud of Turin.
See there Domandred? It’s easy to make up pretend artifacts on both sides of the fence.
LMAO, good one!

SO...you think your prowess with the Search function proves you have the brawn to soar o’er us?
No brontosauri were harmed in the creation of this post.
The footlongasaurus had one known predator: The gray poupon. Faced with one, it developed a yellow streak - in fact, it was really quite a big weiner. Not wanting to meat its adversary, it would hot-dog down the slopes and the predators could never quite catch-up.
Just how big was that Ark again ?
That was the wurst analysis I’ve ever read! Made me want to kielbasa over.
You bad, bad, boy.
Oh, dear, what have I done?
Psst. You think it was Ark-ancide?
That would be the Bun-ny slopes, I suppose.
Just how big was that Ark again ?
Of course he wasn’t on the Ark.
He was a stick in the mud!
“Actually Futalognkosauru is derived from the Coney Islandish meaning “Nathan’s” and “the big one” and is properly pronounced “foot-long-ko-saurus”.”
I don’t know about the dinosaur’s place in the hierarchy, however it does take 12 inches to be a ruler.
Now that's funny!
Why are you sorry? All of us that missed it the first time are really enjoying it!:)
To be frank, I suggest we go no furter on this thread.
Name that PC dinosaur.
You are not just out of your Ball Park, you’re out of your Hebrew National league. You are full of baloney and the wurst excuse for a human bean I’ve never met. Guys like you are a dino dozen.
But—at least you mustard up the courage to speak your mind.
Futalognkosaurus dukei. Can’t they come up with something original?
THe actual name of the dinosaur, as announced by Nathan’s hotdogs was “Footlongcausestsaurus” ( A footlong hotdog will cause you trouble = tsoros is Yiddish for trouble). Never met a footlong hotdog that gave me trouble, but if you get one with a lot of filler, you could have tsoros.
There was a place at Atlantic City in 1963 that featured cheap foot long hotdogs, and they were pretty good. However, the girl behind the counter serving them was one of the most beautiful young women I had ever seen.
I’ll always remember that hotdog, the “Hotdog of the summer of ‘63”.
Did get to date the hamburger girl in Elizabethtown, Pa, in the summer of ‘65. A really nice, cute and intelligent girl, too. Gladys, I still think of you and your smile.
My granddaughter will be tickled pink to know that there is another dinosaur model we can add to her collection (now over 20 different types, and growing). And she is only 2-1/2, and knows their names.
She has tea with them every day, and lets some eat marshmellows with her too.
Barney, however, is not her favorite tv character. ELMO is!
THe kid has taste!
