N.G.-December 1997: Uncovering Patagonia's Lost World

Sharp Toothed Terror

Charging through the Cretaceous landscape, eight-ton, 42-foot-long Giganotosaurus, one of the largest of all carnivores, dwarves a herd of human-size herbivores, larger cousins of Gasparinisaura.

"This was an animal that would run in, take a very large bite, and then back off and watch," says Canadian dinosaur expert Philip Currie. "Basically, the prey would bleed to death."

 

Emerging Marvels

Patagonia's dinosaurs were once seen as wierd forms that evolved in isolation after South America split from other continents. Now Coria and others view many as close relatives of creatures that roamed the super-continent Pangaea.
