In Russia found the remains of the biggest dinosaur in history

of Sauropods can be identified by their long neck.

In one of our previous articles that in Russia it is almost impossible to find the remains of dinosaurs. This is true, but there are rare exceptions — recently, on the territory of the Republic of Yakutia were found the teeth of a huge dinosaur. According to a team of scientists from Russia and Germany, who discovered the remains, the bones belong to the so-called sauropods, which can be recognized by their long neck. The discovery is remarkable not only because it was made in our country, and location of the remains — the bones of dinosaurs have never been found in so Northern a region.

According to the scientific journal , the teeth of adult and young dinosaurs was discovered in the area called Teate, which is located in the South-West of Yakutia. Previously, paleontologists who study fossils of ancient animals has already been guessed about the life of sauropods in these parts. However, they thought that the dinosaurs visited the site only in favorable seasons and left immediately after the onset of cold weather. However, the presence among the remains of the teeth of the cubs says that giant creatures can live and breed in Yakutia constantly.

The biggest dinosaurs in history

According to the researchers, the problems with the survival of dinosaurs at the now cold region of our country practically did not arise. The fact that during the so-called Mesozoic millions of years ago the difference between the tropical and polar climates were not that big, than it is today. Then the location of the continents was completely different and ocean currents without any problems transferred heat from the equator to the poles. Because of this, throughout our planet remained a very comfortable life weather conditions.

According to scientists, during the time of the sauropods on the territory of modern Yakutia the average temperature ranged from zero to 14 degrees Celsius. There is therefore nothing surprising in the fact that the terrain Teeta previously also had traces of the life of a stegosaurus. These dinosaurs you've probably seen in the movies "Jurassic Park" and documentaries. You can recognize them by the presence of back plates and spikes, which could be designed to regulate body temperature and repel predators.

As the climate on the territory of Yakutia have been very favorable, scientists believe that there lived other animals. For example, in addition to the warm-blooded creatures like dinosaurs, they could meet and cold-blooded animals. These include modern turtles and lizards. Only crocodiles here there clearly was not found, because quite favourable for all other creatures, the conditions for them are still too harsh.

Speaking of crocodiles. Recently, paleontologists have been living on the territory of Russia, about 210 million years ago, predators, similar to modern crocodiles. They belonged to the group Rauisuchia and had a body length of up to ten meters. Researchers believe that these creatures made dinosaurs awesome view and were their only enemies. About these animals, which literally dominated all the dinosaurs, you can read in our special article.
