Key Info
  • Planet Dinosaur: profile - Argentinosaurus
  • Duration: 02:48
  • A detailed profile of Argentinosaurus, the largest creature to ever walk the Earth. We discover the age, origin and feeding habits of this giant herbivore and compare it to large modern-day herbivores to find out just how much it would need to eat to fuel itself. Geological evidence also proves how we know that this creature grew to such enormous proportions. Created especially for Class Clips from the CBBC series Planet Dinosaur Files, first broadcast in December 2011.
