World's largest dinosaur on display at Plaza Singapura

SINGAPORE - A spectacular fossil replica of one of the largest dinosaurs to ever walk the planet is now being displayed inside a shopping mall here.

The Argentinosaurus, which currently holds the record for being the heaviest land animal ever, and the longest too, is on display at Plaza Singapura from now till June 14.

Measuring approximately 37 metres long and nearly three storeys tall at 7.3 metres, the colossal, life-sized exhibit can be found on level one of the mall.

The Argentinosaurus is a herbivore that lived in Argentina between 94 to 97 million years ago. The dinosaur takes about 40 years to reach its adult size.

Jointly organised by Plaza Singaura and the Science Centre Singapore, shoppers and their children can look forward to dinosaur-themed craft workshops and weekend science shows.

Kids can also try their hand at uncovering hidden dinosaur fossils at an exploratory digging pit.
