In Argentina in 2014, people first discovered Titanosaurs, which are dinosaurs. They lived in the forests of Patagonia 100 million years ago.

People excavated one Titanosaur and moved it to New York. It is now in the American Museum of Natural History. The dinosaur is 37 metres tall and it does not even fit into the fossil hall. Its neck and its head run through the doorway into another room.

Around five million visitors a year will see the skeleton of the dinosaur.

The titanosaur ate plants and it weighed around 70 tonnes – that is like 10 elephants.

Difficult words: excavate (to dig out), fossil (pieces of animals or plants that turned into rocks), skeleton (all of the bones of the body).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
