Australia’s Largest Dinosaur Revealed To Be As Long As A Basketball Court!

Australotitan cooperensis, nicknamed Cooper, was the largest dinosaur species to have walked the ancient land of Australia, a new study in the PeerJ journal has revealed. This giant sauropod, unnamed and unidentified since its discovery between 2005 and 2007, was between 25-30 meters (82-98 feet) long, 5 and 6.5 meters (16.4-21.3 feet) tall, and weighed between 23 and 74 tons (20,800- 67,100 kilograms), the equivalent of 1400 red kangaroos in weight and as long as a basketball court!

Australotitan cooperensis adds to the growing list of uniquely Australian dinosaur species discovered in Outback Queensland, and just as importantly showcases a totally new area for dinosaur discovery in Australia,” said Dr. Scott Hocknull, a researcher at the Queensland Museum and the University of Melbourne, who was the lead author on the study.
