In the ice of Antarctica discovered an ancient monster

20 meters in length, 3 meters in height - it was a real giant of the ancient world! Similar creatures lived about 70 million years ago and have never before met on the territory of Antarctica. Paleontologists believe that the bones belong to a giant titanosaurus, which until recently was believed to have lived anywhere, but not on the icy continent. The remains of titanosaurus were found in Europe, Africa, Asia and South America - it seems that the huge dinosaur had time to settle all over the planet. The head of the research team, Ignacio Cerda, made a bold assumption: the titanosaurs came to Antarctica by the isthmus that existed in antiquity, connecting the continent with South America. Surprisingly, scientists do not fully understand how the titanosaur managed to "conquer" such a vast territory.
