Argentinosaurs were some of the largest animals to ever walk the planet (or fly off it due to a meteor impact!). At 30-40 meters (about 100-125 feet for you imperial system weirdos) and weighing in at over 100 tonnes, they ruled the mid-Cretaceous sauropods.
Paleocosmologists long considered this species to be too massive to survive in space, but a recent photograph of the supernova SN 1604 reveals that argentinosaurs have adapted to the most extreme of environments: the interiors of stars. Scientists are baffled at how they survive the conditions, as a star’s surface would immediately incinerate not only a human being, but also virtually any other conceivable material. And yet, angentinosaurs have been observed “cocooning” in stellar nests and subsisting until supernovas rocket them back into deep space, where they seek out promising nebulae and begin their cycle anew.
