Huanghetitan ruyangensis - The giant of the Yellow River

Temporal Range: Middle Cretaceous, Cenomanian, around ~100-94 Ma?

Length: Around ~30 metres?
Probable mass: Around ~50-75 tonnes?

Etymology: Titan of the Yellow River


Huanghetitan ruyangensis is probably among the largest known dinosaurs known from fossil bones in Asia. It is known from a partial vertebral column and several ribs. It was attributed a "deepest body cavity" record due to the size of it's ribs, the longest of which approach 3 metres. However, this record attribution is an exaggeration, as the Late Jurassic diplodocid Supersaurus vivianae has ribs outmatching those of the longest known H. ruyangensis ribs in length.

Somphospondylids outside Titanosauria deserve more attention. Nice one.
