A team of French palaeontologists have uncovered a gigantic dinosaur bone at an excavation site in southwest France.
The two-meter long thigh bone is believed to have belonged to a sauropod one of the largest creatures ever to have walked the Earth.
Sauropods were widespread in the Jurassic era, over 140 million years ago and were notable for their long necks and tails. They were herbivorous, meaning they ate a diet consisting mostly of plants.
The bone was found in at the Angeac-Charente excavation site where numerous other dinosaur remains have been uncovered since 2010.
This is a major discovery, Ronan Allain, a paleontologist at the National History Museum of Paris told Reuters.
The femur is over 140 million years old, two meters long and weighs about 500 kilograms (AFP)

I was especially amazed by the state of preservation of that femur.
These are animals that probably weighed 40 to 50 tonnes.(source)
