The American Museum of Natural History in New York is showing off a new exhibit that may be too big for its building.
The newly discovered dinosaur, a 122-foot-long titanosaur, was unveiled Thursday. It is on display at the museum on the dinosaur floor, grazing the gallery’s 19-foot-high ceiling and extending its head and neck toward the elevators. While the giant herbivore is just a cast, one of its 8-foot thigh bones is on temporary view.
The fossils were excavated in Argentina. The name titanosaur refers to a group of giant dinosaurs, who lived about 95 to 100 million years ago during the Late Cretaceous period.
