These were the largest land animals ever on our planet Planet Living A 1998 University of Kansas expedition excavated a huge foot fossil almost a meter wide and nicknamed "Bigfoot."
Scientists discovered that the dinosaur – a very close relative of Brachiosaurus – had the largest feet of a sauropod. and grazed the area 150 million years ago.
A reproduction of Brachiosaurus araucaria, or "Bigfoot".
A fossilized dinosaur foot believed to be the largest in the world has been excavated in Weston County, Wyoming, United States .
"It was immediately apparent that the foot, which was almost a meter wide, came from an extremely large animal, so the specimen was named 'Bigfoot'," said Maltese, lead author of the study [1
Bandfire burns 200 hectares in Pinyon Pines area, firefighters say  A year ago California had 3,4,000 forest fires that burned 99,000 acres, according to Cal Fire. Dry grass and brushing in steep terrain fired the fire, according to Cal Fire officials.
The foot described in a recent new scientific essay recently published in the Open Access Journal PeerJ – The Journal of Life and Environmental Sciences was unearthed in 1998 by a university expedition from Kansas , with Anthony Maltese, lead author of the study, as a member of the team.
Another notable detail about the foot fossil is that it was buried under the tail bone of another giant sauropod, known as Camarasaurus dinosaur along with the remains of "several individuals of different ages and of at least three different species, "said study co-author Emanuel Tschopp in a statement. The sauropod foot fossil was discovered in the Morrison Formation – a rocky deposit that has historically produced a wealth of late Cretaceous fossils, including the rare dinosaur skeleton more than $ 2 million at auction in Paris in early June reported the Inquisitr at that time.
Footprints Twice as Large as the King of Dinosaurs – The Tyrannosaurus rex – were made from a giant, long-necked plant- Eating animals has been shown by scientists. Her research confirms that this foot is the largest dinosaur discovered so far. Their findings also confirmed that brachiosaurs inhabited a large area of eastern Utah to northwestern Wyoming about 150 million years ago
Other researchers of the project include Femke Holwerda, PhD student at the Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich, and David Burnham, researchers at the University of Kansas.
"That's surprising." Many other sauropods dinosaurs seem to have inhabited smaller areas during this time, "said Dr. Tschopp
