Dinosaurs versus airplane

Sep 9, 2014

Scientists found the fossils of a giant dinosaur that they estimate was 26 meters long and 60 tons heavy. How much is that really? BBC News provided a simple chart to put size into perspective. They compared dinosaur sizes to a moose, African Elephant, and a Boeing 737-900.

Impressive. Although not as impressive as Mega Shark. [Thanks, Jim]
