Portuguese man accidentally uncovers a 25-metre-long dinosaur skeleton in his own backyard
A 25-metre fossilised dinosaur skeleton was the last thing a Portugal man expected to uncover in his own backyard in 2017, but now researchers believe he may have stumbled upon the largest of its kind in Europe.
While carrying out construction five years ago, the owner of a property in Pombal, Portugal noticed several fragments of fossilised bones in his yard.
Earlier this month, a team of palaeontologists from Portugal and Spain spent ten days at the Monte Agudo palaeontological site in Pombal.
They say they have unearthed the vertebrae and ribs of a possible brachiosaurid sauropod that would have stood approximately 12 metres tall and 25 metres long.
