About Giganotosaurus
For many decades it was believed that Tyrannosaurus was the largest land predator. This all changed in 1995 when a mechanic and part-time amateur fossil hunter named Ruben Carolini found an almost complete skeleton of an even larger hunter. This powerful monster was given the name Giganotosaurus, which means "Large Southern Reptile."

Giganotosaurus' head by itself would have been larger than most full-grown adult humans, meaning that Giganotosaurus could have eaten a human in a single bite.

Giganotosaurus had sharp arrow tip-shaped teeth, used for slicing through the thick hides of its victims.

Why was Giganotosaurus so large? This animal was discovered in Argentina, which is famous for large dinosaurs. The biggest dinosaurs ever discovered are mostly from this region. It is likely that other even larger hunters are still waiting to be found.
