   Argentine Claims World's Biggest Dinosaur Find

   By Mayra Pertossi

   BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (Reuters) - An Argentine paleontologist
   claimed on Thursday to have unearthed remains of the world's
   largest dinosaur in the latest find to show the nation's richness
   in bones -- and its competition between their hunters.

   Jorge Calvo told Reuters he had found vertebrae of a giant
   sauropoda (herbivore) in Rio Negro province, 750 miles southwest of
   Buenos Aires, that measured roughly a yard across, estimating the
   animal weighed 90-100 tons, stood about 52 feet tall and was about
   130 feet long.
