Supersaurus Latest News : Scientist Discovers Supersaurus Longest Dinosaur In The History Previously Thought Bones Of Three Dinosaur

Washington
After nearly 50 years of hard work, finally scientists have got a big success. Paleontologists have finally discovered ‘Supersaurus’, the longest dinosaur ever found. Dinosaurs of the Jurassic period were found on Earth about 150 million years ago. The length of these dinosaurs with a long neck and long tail was 128 to 137 feet. The smallest Supersaurus was also taller than Diplodocus at 108 feet, which was thought to be the longest dinosaur ever.

Brian Curtis, a paleontologist at the Arizona Museum of Natural History, led the research that discovered Supersaurus. The results of the research were presented at a virtual conference organized by the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology on 5 November, which are yet to be published in the journal. The first specimen of Supersaurus was discovered in 1972 at the Dry Mesa Dinosaur Quarry in Colorado, USA. According to Curtis, the whole discovery was a ‘salad’ of different bones.

Big mistake found in research
Jim Jensen excavated the area and discovered bones of varying sizes. These bones seemed to belong to different dinosaurs. Jensen published his findings claiming the discovery of three sauropods (dinosaurs with long necks and long tails). Later paleontologists found mistakes in Jensen’s research. According to Curtis, the bones that Jensen thought belonged to three dinosaurs were actually those of a supersaurus.

Due to the changes over time, the bones were of different sizes and had cracks. Curtis told Live Science that if you add up all the cracks, the bones in the shoulder and pelvis are basically the same size. The bones also did not belong to any other similarly sized dinosaurs and all the large bones found at the site are roughly the same size. This shows that they are probably related to the same dinosaur.
