Scientists recently identified the giant dino more than a decade after its fossilized foot, ankle, and leg bones were first discovered some 13,000 feet (4,000 meters) up the face of Mount Kirkpatrick.

Tipping the scales at six tons and measuring some 25 feet (7.6 meters) long, Glacialisaurus belonged to a group of dinos called sauropodomorphs that were the largest to have ever walked the Earth, scientists say. Click here for the full story.

It's worth pointing out that this isn't the first dinosaur discovery, in 2004 a jurassic plant eater and a crecetaceous meat eater were also discovered. Click here to read more about this earlier discovery.
