Largest Creatures to walk Earth

In 2014 paleontologists in Patagonia, southern Argentina unearthed a 90-million-year-old fossil of what they claim is one of the largest dinosaurs found to date. The dinosaur, Patagotitan mayorum, weighed about 80 tons, the equivalent of 14 grown elephants.
A complete skeleton was found in a field discovered by a farm worker, where up to seven such complete skeletons are believed to exist, in the locality of El Sombrero.
