The name indicates the size of the dinosaur, whose length could reach up to 20 meters, and weight - 50 tons.

Researchers of the Tomsk State University (TSU) published a scientific article describing an earlier unknown species of dinosaur recently unearthed in the Kemerovo Region. The species was named Sibirotitan astrosacralis. This was announced by the press service of the university.

"Remnants of a fossil animal belonging to the family of the largest herbivorous lizards - sauropods, were found by scientists in the Shestakovsky Yar (Kemerovo Region), during the expedition of 2008. During the study of fossils, paleontologists revealed anatomical features in the dinosaur that distinguish it from other known brethren ", - the report reads.
