Meet the Titanosaur, Coming Soon to American Museum of Natural History

This month, the American Museum of Natural History is adding a massive fossil to its prehistoric collection: a 122-foot long Titanosaur.

Measuring 122 feet, the Museum's new exhibit, The Titanosaur, is big--so big that its head extends outside of the Museum's fourth-floor gallery where it is now on permanent display. This species of dinosaur, a giant herbivore that belongs to a group known as titanosaurs, is so new that it has not yet been formally named by the paleontologists who discovered it. The Titanosaur lived in the forests of today’s Patagonia about 100 to 95 million years ago, during the Late Cretaceous period, and weighed 70 tons. It is one of the largest dinosaurs ever discovered.
