Tuesday, May 27, 2014 – Last Saturday we asked, Is This New Patagonian Dinosaur the Largest Ever? And we warned that “details are sparse at this juncture,” given that this new discovery only contained a few bones and not an entire skeleton. Well, now we have some further discussion on this matter by freelance science writer and author Brian Switek.

Brian discussed the dangers of calling this dinosaur “the largest ever” with NPR, and whether this new sauropod survived ‘The Great Extinction’ on NatGeo.
