A 122-foot-long titanosaur
, a Patagotitan mayorum from Argentina, is expected to arrive in June.
While as massive as a bull African elephant, Mansourasaurus was modestly sized next to titanosaur
cousins such as South America's Argentinosaurus, Dreadnoughtus and Patagotitan and Africa's Paralititan, some exceeding 100 feet (30 meters) long.
Mansourasaurus, however, was moderate-sized for a titanosaur
, roughly the weight of an African bull elephant.
But Mansourasaurus, which lived about 80 million years ago, was moderately sized for a titanosaur
- only as large as a school bus and weighing as much as an African bull elephant.
A new giant titanosaur
sheds light on body mass evolution among sauropod dinosaurs," Proceedings of the Royal Society B, Biological Sciences (August 9, 2017), accessed November 24, 2017, http://rspb.
lived 100 million years ago during the Cretaceous period and was a sauropod, a huge plant-eater with a long tail and neck that stood on four legs.
It belonged to the Titanosaur
group of herbivores that had large bodies, long necks and tails and relatively small skulls, he said.
The exhibition, which comes on the heels of the unveiling of a 122-foot-long titanosaur
cast on permanent display in the museum's Orientation Center, is part of a series of events, public programs, exhibitions, and digital offerings highlighting dramatic developments in paleontology.
