Two New Mega-Dinosaurs Discovered in Morocco

More giant monsters from Earth's distant past have been discovered. Deep in Saharan Morocco, researchers uncovered a meter-long bone that's part of a massive dinosaur who munched on greenery.

National Geographic says:

The team unearthed a three-foot-high (one-meter-high) bone from the sauropod, which means the long-necked herbivore was almost 65 feet (20 meters) in length.

They also found a massive chunk of beak from a pterosaur, an immense birdlike creature from the same era as the sauropod - about 100 million years ago.
