Dreadnoughtus

The largest dinosaurs were the huge sauropods. One of the most complete skeletons of these giant creatures ever to be excavated was recently dug up in Argentina. It weighed an astounding 130,000 pounds, almost the weight of a Boeing passenger jet! Part of a group called Titanosaurs, the monster has been dubbed Dreadnoughtus. Perhaps it might have better been named “Behemethsaurus!” For more information on the biggest dinosaurs, see the Genesis Park Big and Small Dinosaurs page.

Recently Added to the Park

Some additions have been made to the Dragons in History page, including the account of a dragon whose bones are still displayed at Wawel Cathedral in Poland and a delightful picture of ancient peoples smoking pterosaurs from frankincense trees as described by Herodotus.

Visitor Feedback

A couple of recent comments from visitors to Genesis Park:

        • Greg from Auburn, WA wrote: “I love Dave’s new dinodave.com site and have been following your collective work for nearly a decade. Of particular interest is the ongoing Ropen investigations…”
        • Levi from the U.K. writes “This must be a scam, no? I know there are a lot of religious zealots (in the USA they’re called ‘Christians’ I believe) and I know they give a lot of money to charlatans whose purpose is to de-educate the population. This is understandable, an educated population is more easily bilked for money. Keep up the good work. In the rest of the world we’re all researching science. Good luck in the Paleolithic.”

Thank you for visiting the park. Please consider dropping us a note with your thoughts before you leave.
