Sauroposeidon proteles

(SAWR oh po SIDE un pro THE leez)

Spanning 39 and a half feet, our reconstruction of the head and neck of this enormous dinosaur leads into the space that will be occupied by the new Orientation Gallery.

Not the longest dino, but at this writing the tallest. It's long forelegs (18' at the shoulder) enabled it to look over a 6-story building.

Reconstruction was performed by RCI. We assisted with the installation of the beast late last year. The most fun we have had in a long time.
