Titanosaur Now on Display at New York Museum

Move over T-rex...A newly discovered, 122-foot-long, dinosaur is now on display at the American Museum of Natural History.

The prehistoric creature is so big, it tops the museum's model of a blue whale by about 30 feet. So large, it took crews nearly two years to unearth the new species.

The mysterious dinosaur was discovered in the Patagonian desert region of Argentina back in 2014. Scientists say the giant herbivore is part of the lizard-like Titanosaur group... And likely roamed the earth 100 million years ago.
