New Type of European Dinosaur Discovered in France


It seems I am the first English language writer on this topic. All the news stories are in French or German. None the less, a new European Dinosaur was recently discovered in Velaux, in France.

It appears to be a herbivore for it's small, cylindrical teeth, but was 12 Metres in length, and of the heaviest race of dinosaurs: titanosaurian type. This Atsinganosaurus Velauciensis Dino Gypsie, is about 75 Million Years Old (Cretaceous period) , and the French have found 70% of it's skeleton, but not the skull.

The other dinosaurs on site, were also of the same period, just before the wiping out of dinosaurs. Finds include crocodile skeletons.
