Scientists have discovered the fossilised remains of a long-neck diplodocid dinosaur in the western Argentine province of Neuquen.

The region is home to more dinosaur bones than almost anywhere else in the world.

Researchers are excited by new evidence showing that the species may have roamed the earth long after the Jurassic period.
