Argentinosaurus huinculensis

Argentinosaurus huinculensis is a genus of sauropod dinosaur that lived during the Late Cretaceous, approximately 94 to 97 million years ago.

Argentinosaurus was a gigantic sauropod dinosaur, characterized by its enormous size and its typical sauropod body structure. It belonged to the group of titanosaurs, a lineage of sauropods that includes some of the largest known dinosaurs.

The body of Argentinosaurus was supported by massive and robust legs ending in hooves, adapted to support the immense weight of the dinosaur. As a sauropod, Argentinosaurus was characterized by its long neck and tail, and its small head in relation to body size. The main function of the long neck was to reach and consume vegetation, allowing it to feed on the treetops.

The total length of Argentinosaurus is estimated at around 40 meters, although estimates may vary, and its body mass is estimated at several tens of tons, making it one of the heaviest sauropods.

Argentinosaurus fossils were discovered in Argentina, specifically in the geological formation known as the Río Limay Formation. The information derived from these fossil remains has contributed significantly to the understanding of the Cretaceous fauna of South America and the diversity of sauropod dinosaurs.

It is important to note that the complete reconstruction of Argentinosaurus is based on partial fossil remains, mainly vertebrae and other bone fragments. Although efforts have been made to estimate their appearance and anatomy accurately, some specific characteristics, such as the exact shape of the head, may still be subject to interpretation and further study.

Approximate measurements of the Argentinosaurus:

  • Scale 1:100 Assembly kit
    • Length 305mm
    • Height 185mm
    • Snout-tail length 395 mm
