Paleontologists have dug up a 140-million-year-old dinosaur bones, the 6.5 feet) in length, with a weight of 1100 kilos, in France. The thigh bone was found in the river Charente, this is an area that dates back to 140 million years old and is a treasure trove for the archaeologists of the past.

“This is a very significant discovery,” Ronan Allain, a paleontologist at the National History Museum in Paris, said in an interview with Reuters. “I was very surprised at the state of preservation of femur.”

The thigh bone of a Sauropod, which is more than 140-million-year-old, 6.5 feet in length and a weight of 1100 pounds, is to be seen in situ in a bed of clay, on the 24th of July, 2019 at the latest, after it was discovered that earlier in the week, during the excavation in the paleontological site of Angeac-Charente in the vicinity of Châteauneuf-sur – Charente, in the south-west of the country. In the Jurassic period Sauropod, the largest plant eating dinosaur known to date, was discovered, situated in a thick layer of clay by a team of volunteers and a bulldozer of the National Museum of Natural History in new york to work at the paleontological site.

“These are animals that probably weighs 40 or 50 tons,” Allain added.

More than 7,500 of fossils have been found in the river Charente, and since 2010, including those from over 40 different species. It is unclear as to what exactly is in the sauropod bone which belongs to it just yet, but the group includes brachiosaurus, and brontosaurus, seen on famous in “Jurassic Park.”

“This is femur, it is great! And in a remarkable state of preservation,” Angouleme, the Museum curator, Jean-François Tournepiche, told The Local.

Allain added that it was “very rare” to find a fossil of this size, as they usually collapse on themselves and break up into fragments.
