Giant dinosaur thigh-bone found in SW France

The extraordinary discovery of a two-meter long femur thought to have belonged to a sauropod, a 40- to 50-tonne herbivorous dinosaur with a long neck and tail, a species widespread in the late Jurassic era of over 140 million years ago, was made this week at the site of Angeac-Charente, near Cognac in south-west France.
