Maximo the dinosaur, now on display at Chicago's Natural History Museum, is the biggest dinosaur discovered to date by scientists.


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.
