The picture they ran with the story showed 105 feet as its length; the mistake was only in the text.

32 m?

What would be the length of a titanosaur of such a height?

It was a funny error on the part of the BBC web site writers. They meant - or at least, I *hope* they meant - length. 105 foot/32m tall would indeed be frightening.

What WOULD be the estimated length of a monster like that?
