The World's Largest Dinosaurs (April 16, 2011-January 2, 2012), a new exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History, goes beyond traditional fossil shows to reveal how dinosaurs actually lived by taking visitors into the amazing anatomy of a uniquely super-sized group of dinosaurs: the long-necked and long-tailed sauropods, which ranged in size from 15 to 150 feet long.

Drawing on the latest science that looks in part to existing organisms to understand these extinct giants, The World's Largest Dinosaurs will answer such intriguing questions as how an extremely large animal breathes, eats, moves, and survives by illuminating how size and scale are related to basic biological functions.

Innovative interactive exhibits—including the exhibition centerpiece, a life-sized, fleshed-out model of a60-foot- long, 11-foot-tall female Mamenchisaurus, known for its remarkable, 30-foot neck—will take visitors inside these giants' bodies, shedding light on how heart rate, respiration, metabolism, and reproduction are linked to size. An interactive excavation at the end of the exhibition will introduce visitors to how dinosaurs are discovered in the field through a replicated dig site.

The World's Largest Dinosaurs is curated by Mark Norell, chair of the Division of Paleontology at the American Museum of Natural History, and guest co-curated by Martin Sander of the University of Bonn, Germany. The Exhibition is organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York (www.amnh.org) in collaboration with Coolture Marketing, Bogotá, Colombia.
