The World’s Largest Dinosaurs introduces the amazing biology of a group of super-sized dinosaurs: the long-necked and long-tailed sauropods.
Size affects just about everything an animal does: eating, breathing, moving, and reproducing. This traveling exhibition goes beyond bones and into the bodies of sauropods, the biggest land animals ever, to take a look at how these titans pulled it off.
Find out how scientists study fossils and living animals to understand sauropod biology; how heart rate, respiration, metabolism, and reproduction are linked to size; and what we can learn from these extinct animals about what it means to be big
