Starting this week, the skeleton of the largest dinosaur ever discovered in London.

A cast of the spectacular Titanosaurus, known as Patagotitan mayorum, will be on display at London’s Museum of Natural History from March 31.

This is the first time that Patagotitan mayorum can be seen in Europe.

The massive specimen is four times heavier than Dippy, the Diplodocus exhibit, and 40 feet longer than Hope, the museum’s blue whale.

Surrounded by illustrations of Cretaceous plants and animals, visitors can follow the life of the titanosaur from a football-sized egg plucked from its nest to a fully grown adult.

The skeleton even bears the marks of an encounter with a wild predator that took a bite out of its tail.

Visitors can also learn how the Titanosaurus stayed safe, found food, and was head and shoulders above its Cretaceous creatures.

The interactive exhibit also allows you to measure yourself against his massive femur, stare into his giant sauropod skull, and even smell his poop.

Last year, scientists in southwest Argentina unearthed massive 98-million-year-old fossils belonging to Titanosaurus.

An excavation in the Candeleros Formation in southwestern Argentina’s Neuquen River valley has uncovered fossilized pieces of human bones belonging to the giant sauropod.

The Titanosaurus Patagotitan Mayorum is the largest dinosaur scientists have yet discovered.

This long-necked herbivorous dinosaur lived more than 100 million years ago in what is now Patagonia, Argentina.

“We are thrilled that Patagotitan, the most complete giant dinosaur ever discovered, is making its European debut here at the Natural History Museum, the birthplace of the dinosaur,” said Dr. Alex Burch, the museum’s director of public programs.

“Our fascination with dinosaurs provides the ideal opportunity to inspire and educate the next generation about the natural world and empower them to act on behalf of the planet.”

The cast of the Patagotitan mayorum was made available to the museum by the Museo Paleontológico Egidio Feruglio (MEF), Argentina.

Tickets for the exhibition are on sale now from £16 for adults and £9 for children.
