How the Argentinosaurus roamed 90 million years ago

One of the world’s largest known dinosaurs, the Argentinosaurus, has been digitally reconstructed, allowing us to begin to understand how a creature weighing upwards of 80 tons moved around. Scientists from Britain and Argentina laser-scanned a detailed model of the 100-foot dinosaur’s skeleton, which was based on recovered bones and fossils. They then re-created its walking and running movements using an advanced 3D-modeling technique. Read related article.
