Besides the ghastly and impressive shapes of dinosaurs, there’s one thing that never ceases to amaze paleontologists and the general public around the world: their gigantic size.
Take Argentinosaurus, for instance. This titanosaur had a massive size and weighed between 50 and 90 tonnes, as believed by scientists. And if you look at today’s mammals, most of them are only between 10 and 100 kilograms in weight, while only the blue whale surpasses the size of dinosaurs. No wonder people look for titanosaur teeth for sale these days.
With a difference of such magnitude between the long-gone dinosaurs and today’s mammals, it makes sense why people wonder and question: how did dinosaurs grow so big?
Let’s look at the reasons that may have caused dinosaurs to grow so big.
