Photo Sunday: Titanosaur

I spent this weekend doing some cultural stuff in New York City, including a visit to the American Museum of Natural History to see their new exhibit: the skeleton of an enormous dinosaur from Argentina, one of the largest ever discovered. This species is so new it doesn’t even have a proper scientific name yet, but “titanosaur” is fitting. At 122 feet long, it’s so large it doesn’t quite fit into the huge gallery room, so its head juts out into the corridor. And the paleontologists who unearthed it believe that it’s a juvenile!

Plant-eater or not, this doesn’t look like a head I’d want looming over me.
