The biggest dinosaur ever discovered by scientists is now on display at Chicago's Field Natural History Museum.

The Field Museum released a timelapse of the dinosaur being assembled.

The long-necked, vegetarian dinosaur is a titanosaur Patagotitan mayorum, which lived over 100 million years ago in modern Patagonia, Argentina.

The dinosaur's been named Maximo (or "maximum" in Spanish) and has a cast that reaches more than 37 metres across and stands more than 7 metres tall at the head.

Scientists modelled Maximo from fossil bones of seven other dinosaurs of the same species also found in Argentina.
