(PIX11) — The fossilized bones of what could be the biggest creature to ever roam the earth have been found in Argentina.

Archaeologists believe it to be a new species of Titanosaur, a beast about 65 feet tall, 130 feet long and weighing 180,000 pounds and as heavy as 14 African elephants.  Despite its gigantic size, the largest dinosaur ever discovered was a herbivore, the BBC reported.

A team from the Museum of Paleontology Egidio Feruglio, based in Southern Argentina, found around 150 bones in “remarkable condition.” The new species has yet to be given a name.

“Given the size of these bones, which surpass any of the previously known giant animals, the news dinosaur is the largest animal known that walked on earth,” researchers told the BBC.

“Standing with its neck up, it was about 65 feet high — equal to a seven story building.”
