World's Largest Dinosaurs
Event took place Aug. 13, 2021
Baylor Alumni and the Mayborn Museum presented a virtual glimpse into the World's Largest Dinosaurs exhibit.
The World's Largest Dinosaurs exhibit remain on display until Sept. 26, 2021. It explores the amazing biology of a group of uniquely super-sized dinosaurs: the long-necked and long-tailed sauropods.
Organized by the American Museum of Natural History in New York, the exhibition draws on paleo-biological research that looks in part to living organisms to make inferences about how these giants— some of which grew to be longer than 150 feet, or the length of four standard city buses—were able to thrive, as a group, for approximately 140 million years.
