Malawisaurus is one of the few titanosaurs whose discovered remains include skull material, giving us a better idea of what this animal and its relatives looked like in life. Like other titanosaurs, it featured large dermal scales covering the skin on its back. The name Malawisaurus refers to the place of discovery, in the republic of Malawi in southeast Africa. It was originally described in 1928 by Sidney Haughton, who incorrectly believed it was a type of Gigantosaurus (a sauropod related to Diplodocus, now known as Tornieria). Though small for a sauropod, Malawisaurus was still quite a large animal at over 50 feet long.
