FIVE FAST FACTS
Though the TV series is called Gigantosaurus, in real life, the gigantosaurus was a sauropod (a type of huge plant eating dinosaur). The big beast in the series is actually based on the meat eating Giganotosaurus. Similar sounding names, but very different dinosaurs!
The Giganotosaurus walked on two powerful legs. Its thin, pointed tail, would have helped it balance and make quick turns while running after prey at speeds of around 50kmph. Woosh!
The Giganotosaurus was even bigger than the mighty T.Rex, measuring up to 13 metres-long! However, both were smaller than the biggest ever carnivore, the Spinosaurus, which could grow to over 15 metres in length. Gulp!
It lived roughly 99.6 to 97 million years ago, in a period known as the late Cretaceous. It lived around the same time as the Argentinosaurus, the largest land animal (that we know of) to ever walk the earth. It may have even preyed on it.
The first Giganotosaurus fossil was found by an amateur fossil hunter in 1993 in Patagonia, Argentina.
