Jainosaurus was a large, long-necked plant-eater that lived in India. It was a titanosaur, the same family as Argentinosaurus. These giants were among the last dinosaurs to live on Earth.

There is some discussion, based on the paucity of remains for Jainosaurus, that this dinosaur is a Titanosaurus. It has been suggested that the distinctions between Jainosaurus and Titanosaurus are related to gender and not genus.
