A man from the Portuguese city of Pombal discovered the remains of a dinosaur on his land during construction work.
According to Phys.org, he turned to paleontologists. Experts found a skeleton of a creature about 25 meters long and about 12 meters high.
The researchers concluded that the remains belong to a four-legged herbivorous dinosaur, distinguished by a long tail and no less long neck.
"It is amazing to see that all the ribs of the animal are preserved in this form, retaining their original anatomical position. This way of preservation is quite unusual in the history of dinosaur fossils, in particular sauropods found in Jurassic Upper Portugal,” said Elisabeth Malarabota, Faculty of Science, University of Lisbon.
