Mr. Nature: The Biggest Dinosaur

It’s hard to say which was really the biggest dinosaur, but Sauroposeidon, from Oklahoma, is a strong candidate for the tallest.

When it comes to the biggest dinosaurs, mostly what we have are bits and pieces. Sauroposeidon’s remains, for instance, were originally mistaken for fossilized tree trunks. The problem with these gigantic creatures is that when they died, their carcasses were too big to be fossilized easily and they mostly broke apart.

But if that picture up above is accurate–and the scientists have done their best, with what they had to work with–wow! Can you imagine seeing an animal anywhere near that big? Oh, the work of God’s hands! When I interviewed the famous paleontologist, Bob Bakker, some years ago, he said he imagined the Lord took a special pleasure in creating these giants.

Obviously they’re not here anymore. God has removed them–where to, we don’t know.

But I suppose there will be some spectacular surprises waiting for us when we get to Heaven.
