There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

2.Bruhathkayosaurus- Bruhathkayosaurus malteyi  might have been between 40–44 m (131–144 ft) in length and “175–220” greater than blue whale tonnes in weight according to some estimates. Its remains found in our country India. This might also be the biggest animal ever. The skeleton lost when floods occurred and assumptions are there that some bones might be fossilized wood. The scientist who put the estimate then said that the estimates are inaccurate afterwards and weight may be somewhat less. The skeleton remains lost during floods. It’s not clear that it’s a real animal, as the few remains we had of it were washed away in a monsoon flood, leaving only some unclear line drawings which could show fragments of sauropod bones or could show petrified wood. At any rate, even if it’s a real animal, it might have been slightly longer than a blue whale but would have been a lot less massive, since a sauropod’s length is mostly long thin neck and tail.
Mickey Mortimer said Bruhathkayosaurus could have been 175–220 tonnes heavy in 2001, but he later changed his opinion and said these numbers are inaccurate but didn’t provide a new mass estimate.

Looks like to be some measurements here, which aren´t confirmed at all. Or where can I find confirmation for Amphicoelias fragillimus? Not from that site, which is here as source, I think. Some other figures seems to be more or less uncertain (?). Can you give sources for these dinosaur measurements? it would be interesting to see.

When you put measurements like this here, I think, that sources for anyone to check should be also there. Now you have big figures for dinosaurs and then for instance for blue whale understatement as far as I know. I mean if you put here longest possible estimations of some animal, then fair way to compare is to put same measurements for other animals too. 

Anyway, put some more sources, please. The one you have here seemed to just tell, that Amphicoelias fragillimus size is very questionable. That makes whole posting a bit questionable, sorry to say that.
