PORTUGAL (WABC) — One of Europe’s largest dinosaurs was found in Portugal.

A private property owner in Pombal first discovered some of the fossils in 2017, according to researchers from the University of Lisbon.

Paleontologists say the dinosaur was about 82 feet long and was a sauropod.

Earlier this month, researchers discovered the remains, vertebrae and a 6.5-foot-long club.

These dinosaurs are considered the largest land animals of all time.

They are herbivorous four-legged species of dinosaurs characterized by long necks and tails.

Experts say that the animal lived about 135 million years ago in the Upper Jurassic period.

Researchers plan to continue excavating the property to find more fossil pieces.

The report used information from CNN.
