This species is so new, paleontologists have not had a chance to formally name it, and it’s skeleton is going up in the American Museum of Natural History this January. The herbivore, found in the Patagonian desert region of Argentina by a team of researchers from the Museo Paleontologico Egidio Feruglio led by José Luis Carballido and Diego Pol, will be exhibited in the Wallach Orientation Center on the fourth floor… all 122 feet of its casted skeleton.
It’s so long that it doesn’t quite fit into the room, so it’s head will extend out to the elevators and welcome visitors to the dinosaur floor.
If you have a dinosuar lover in your family, this Late Cretaceous creature that live about 100 to 95 million years ago is one of the largest dinosaurs ever discovered. It is sure to please even the most critical budding paleontologist.
