Last week the Museum of Natural History in New York unveiled the most major paleontological find in years. The biggest dinosaur ever unearthed, the titanosaur, was discovered in the Patagonian desert of Argentina.

It’s femur is the size of a sofa; its teeth aren’t sharp but they perform like big rakes for foliage; and while its being referred to as one of the titanosaur group, it’s so new that it still hasn’t been given a name. The skeleton fills an entire room of the museum and is still so big that the curators playfully have his huge head peeking out from the doorway entrance.

Check it out now at the American Museum of Natural History on the dinosaur floor through January 2020.
