Big Walker

No reason, except I found this fascinating. The largest dinosaur that we know of was Argentinosaurus. It probably weighed about 80-90 tons...roughly equivalent to a Blue whale, but it walked on land.

Well, they've done a computer model of how it might have moved, and have deduced that it had a top speed of about five miles per hour. Of course, why move fast when you're so big?
