Taxonomy[]

Titanosaurus is estimated to have grown up to 9.1–12.1 metres (30–40 ft) long and up to approximately 13 tons in weight. Wilson and Upchurch (2003) treated Titanosaurus as a nomen dubium ("dubious name") because they noted that the original Titanosaurus specimens cannot be distinguished from those of related animals, but today, Titanosaurus is Not a nomen dubium.
