Largest carnivorous dinosaur (fossil) found in Argentina

Big news for our household: the New York Times has an article on the announcement of the discovery of Mapusaurus roseae, which is larger than Giganotosaurus (which is in turn felt to be larger than Tyrannosaurus rex). Both Mapusaurus and Giganotosaurus were discovered in Argentina, and perhaps hunted Argentinosaurus, a huge plant-eating sauropod.

Ben’s home sick today, so reading about the find—particularly of a new, giant meat-eater—was a nice break.
