Paleontologists at New York’s American Museum of Natural History unveiled a cast skeleton of the world’s biggest dinosaur, a new species of Titanosaur, to a packed crowd of media on Thursday morning.

Go to the article in The Guardian for pictures of this 122 foot long, 19.2 ft tall fossil (replicated in fiberglass) installed in the biggest gallery of the museum.  The face, with its flattened jaw and numerous teeth, is worth a good look and the pictures in this article really do it justice.  This dinosaur was clearly herbivorous and must have lived in a swampy environment.
