Chicago sources reported that the cast skeleton of the largest dinosaur discovered to date will go on exhibit in a recreation of what would have been its home in present day Argentine Patagonia at Chicago's Field Museum starting June 15. Meanwhile the 37 m (122 ft) long cast, dubbed Maximo, occupies one third of the museum's Stanley Field Hall and its head pokes out from a balcony 8.54 m (28 ft) high.
Accordingly Maximo is a long necked mega-herbivore in the family of Titanosaurus. Field Museum president Richard Lariviere said in a statement said "Our goal as an institution is to offer visitors the best possible dinosaur experiences and we want that to start right when visitors first enter Stanley Field Hall".
said "The new titanosaur is huge and it looks amazing in Stanley Field
Hall. It is the perfect home to display the world's largest dinosaur".
Maximo will not be alone and moreover around the skeleton there will be
floating gardens and life-size reproductions of a flock of giant flying
reptiles, some of them 9.7 m long, the length of a school bus. Further the
Maximo model was created from the fossilized bones of seven individual
dinosaurs of the same species excavated from a quarry near La Flecha, Argentina.
