Lots of people find dinosaurs so interesting. Some even devote themselves to searching fossils of these mythical creatures in different countries.

Recently, a scientist named Maxime Lasseron dug up a thigh bone in France. He believed that it belonged to the largest land animal to ever walk on earth.
Based on a report from the South China Morning Post, the huge bone has a weight of 400kg and dated about 140 million years old.
The scientist believed that the thigh bone belonged to a sauropod, a plant-eating dinosaur that is 18 meters tall.
According to the report, the sauropod’s thigh bone has a size of 2 meters or 6.5 foot long. It is beneath the grape farm in Southwestern France. The place is dubbed as “national treasure” because lots of valuable objects were found in the area.
Researchers and volunteers have found thousands of fossils over the past decade.
Based on the report, the dinosaur’s thigh bone could complete the incomplete set of bones in a museum.
