iStock/Thinkstock(BUENOS AIRES, Argentina) -- The fossilized bones of a huge dinosaur have been unearthed in Argentina.

Based on the dinosaur's thigh bone, the animal was 130 feet long and 65 feet tall. It was reportedly as heavy as 14 African elephants.

Scientists say the fossilized bones, stumbled on by an Argentinian farm worker, is a new species of dinosaur-- an enormous herbivore which lived in the forests of Patagonia between 95 and 100 million years ago.

It is believed to have been the biggest dinosaur to have ever walked the earth. It will reportedly be named to describe its magnificence and in honor of those who discovered it.
