Daxiatitan is a genus of titanosauriformdinosaur from the Lower Cretaceous of Lanzhou Basin, Gansu Province, northwestern China. It is known from fossils including several neck vertebrae, a shoulder blade, and a thigh bone.[1]

It was a very large dinosaur, estimated at 23–30 meters (75–98 feet).[2][1] Like both Euhelopus and Huanghetitan, it had an enormously long neck.[3]

The neck of Daxiatitan was about 50 feet long which is longer than an adult Tyrannosaurus rex.
