A man found a dinosaur skeleton in the park

A man found a dinosaur skeleton in the park

A team of Spanish and Portuguese paleontologists are excavating the fossil remains of what could be the largest dinosaur ever found in Europe.

Portugal’s dinosaur adventure began after a man noticed fossil bone remains in the park in 2017, but only in recent weeks has excavations accelerated and the giant skeleton unearthed.

The skeleton is believed to be that of a brachiosaurus. It is one of the most famous species of dinosaur, which was among the dinosaurs in the Jurassic Park movies.

The dinosaur could reach a height of 39 meters and a length of 25 meters in its lifetime. It was a herbivorous animal with a remarkably long neck.

– It is not unusual to find bones from an animal like this. This is not particularly so with all anatomy in the right position, says fellow paleontologist Elisabeth Malavia, at the University of Lisbon, in Press release.

The skeleton is in very good condition. Brachiosaurus lived in the late Jurassic period, between 160 and 100 million years ago.
