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.

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
