"Remnants of a fossil animal belonging to the family of the largest herbivorous lizards - sauropods, were found by scientists in the Shestakovsky Yar (Kemerovo Region), during the expedition of 2008. During the study of fossils, paleontologists revealed anatomical features in the dinosaur that distinguish it from other known brethren ", - the report reads.
