This giant dinosaur with a really long name could be the biggest dinosaur ever discovered. For several years it was thought to be a gigantic meat-eater, but it was recently classified as a sauropod, the long-necked family of dinosaurs that includes Argentinosaurus  Bruhathkayosaurus was among the largest dinosaurs that ever lived and would have been an awesome sight to see. Good thing for T. Rex it wasn't a meat-eater because Bruhathkayosaurus was about twice as big!

Some scientists don't think that the Bruhathkayosaurus fossils clearly illustrate the dinosaur's size. These scientists believe the actual size may have been somewhat smaller, but still very impressive.
