Scientists in Argentina’s Patagonian have found fossils of what may be the oldest-known member of the dinosaur group known as Titanosaurs. It includes the largest land animals in Earth’s history.

Researchers believe that the fossils represent a dinosaur species named Ninjatitan zapatai. It lived 140 million years ago during the Cretaceous Period.

They identified Ninjatitan as a Titanosaur. It is a group of long-necked plant-eating dinosaurs. It walked on four pillar-like legs.

The incomplete skeletal remains of dinosaurs are now in the city of Neuquen. Moreover, researchers say that Ninjatitan demonstrated that the Titanosaurs as a group first appeared longer ago than previously known.

According to reports, Titanosaurs were in existence on various sides of the world, but these are the oldest ones
