A group of scientists in Argentina have found evidence of a nine-metre dinosaur.
The new dinosaur is related to the related to Diplodocus and is part of the Diplodocid family of dinosaurs. These dinosaurs have extra-long necks and whip-like tails to fend off predators.
The new dinosaur has been called the Leinkupal laticauda and it is the first dinosaur of its kind to be found in South America.
Scientists believe that it lived around 140 million years ago.
Scientists have thought that all diplodocids died out at the end of the Jurassic period, about 145 million years ago.
This new discovery suggests that this smaller relative carried on living much later than that.
