This type of species belongs to sauropod family. Rupert Wild was the first to describe the species in 1991. This herbivore species comes under the classification of Chordata, Reptilia, Dinosauria, Saurischia, Sauropodomorpha, Sauropoda, Titanosauria.
As only some of the fossil remains were discovered, the characteristics and skeletal structure of the species have not been completely revealed into picture. It is estimated that the size of the creature would range from 15-24 meters long. From the discovered remains of crania and limb bones it is identified that the species would have featured a long neck, used for eating leaves on the surfaces of tall trees and shrubs. Based on the remains it is predicted that this kind of dinosaur would have got a giant skeletal structure".
