Weighing titanosaurs

Patagotitan mayorum - how much did it weigh?

A lot! But science needs a bit more accuracy than that, so this article discusses how to estimate the weight of the largest titanosaur found so far. And comes to no very definite conclusion. It is thought to be 8 to 18% heavier than Argentinosaurus hiunculensis (the previous largest dinosaur) which is thought to have weighed 73 tons.
