London - The fossilised remains of huge plant-eating dinosaurs have been found in Antarctica.
It is the first evidence of titanosaurs - the largest vertebrates which have ever lived - in the world’s most southerly continent.
A team of Argentinian scientists made the discovery of a mid-tail vertebra in the James Ross Basin.
Titanosaurs - which had small, wide heads and spoon-like teeth - were a diverse group of sauropod dinosaurs which originated in the early cretaceous period, which ran from 99 to 67 million years ago.
At the time, Antarctica was not a frozen wasteland but was covered in forest. Sauropods continued to roam the earth until the end of the cretaceous period which marked the extinction of the dinosaurs. - Daily Mail
