Paleontologists are digging in a Portuguese backyard in search of the remains of the largest known dinosaur found in Europe. University of Lisbon researchers claim that this could be the largest ever discovered.

A property owner in Pombal, central Portugal discovered fossilized fragments of the dinosaur while doing construction work in 2017.

The university’s Faculty of Sciences said that earlier this month, Spanish- and Portuguese-based paleontologists worked at the site to uncover what they believe is a dinosaur that lived about 25m (82 feet) in length and lived approximately 145 million years ago.
