First Among The Works Of God
Its tail sways like a cedar;
the sinews of its thighs are close-knit.
18 Its bones are tubes of bronze,
its limbs like rods of iron.
19 It ranks first among the works of God.
For the first time, The Largest Dinosaur ever displayed will be available for viewing at New York’s American Museum of Natural History. Its name is the “Titanosaur” and at over 120 feet long it’s being dubbed the largest to ever be discovered.
The Titanosaur, which is being dubbed the world’s largest dinosaur ever discovered, was excavated in Argentina in 2014. This is the first time it is being put on display to the public. The immense scale of this display is simply so big, it hardly fits inside the room it’s currently being housed in. The head and neck extrude out the door and into the hallway. According to the museum, “the dino, with its neck extended, would be able to peer into the top floor of a five-story building.”
When Diego Pol, the lead paleontologist, along with his team first discovered the fossils, they took photos of him ying next to the animal’s huge thighbone made their rounds quickly on the internet.
The thigh bone of this massive animal weighs over 1,100 pounds just by itself. However, the entire Titanosaur species is believed to have weighed more than 70 tons, which is similar to the weight of at least 10 African elephants.
The entire Titanosaur specimen was recreated and cast from “84 of 223 fossil bones that were unearthed at the Argentina discovery site,” CNN reported. The group of fossils belonged to a total of six individuals dinosaurs — all of which were young adults who once “roamed the lush forests of Patagonia.”
