Species

The Pakisauridae is a dubious family of sauropod dinosaurs that lived during the Maastrichtian in Pakistan and contained the genera Pakisaurus, Khetranisaurus and Sulaimanisaurus. There is much debate in the scientific community about the validity of the family, as it might be a synonym for the famous Titanosauridae.
