15 Jan Titanosaur Unveiled at the American Museum of Natural History
An amazing 122-foot long Titanosaur has been unveiled at the American Museum of Natural History.
The Titanosaur’s neck is peeking out of the exhibition room as the 122-foot cast of the dinosaur is just too big to fit entirely inside the space!
Paleontologists suggest this dinosaur, a giant herbivore that belongs to a group known as titanosaurs, weighed in at around 70 tons. The species lived in the forests of today’s Patagonia about 100 to 95 million years ago, during the Late Cretaceous period, and is one of the largest dinosaurs ever discovered.
This is an exhibition not to be missed – and is located in the Wallach Orientation Center, on the fourth floor.
Have a look at the video below to find out about it’s discovery, and the process undertaken to re-create the dinosaur as a model.
