Dubai Dino

'A plant-eating dinosaur that met its demise at the bottom of a waterhole 155 million years ago has taken up residence at The Dubai Mall, and now it’s up to the public to name the rare find.

The 24.4-metre-long and 7.6-metre-high Diplodocus longus was unveiled to an eager crowd on Monday evening, and as the curtain was drawn, a ricochet of gasps could be heard across the mall.

“I was expecting to see a luxury car or yacht, not a dinosaur,” Italian tourist Vicardo Lorenzo told Khaleej Times.'

In the end, they named it Dubai Dino. Yesterday, I finally saw it for myself.


"No comparable exhibit, with nearly all bones completing the skeleton, exists elsewhere. Yes, the dinosaur before you is as real as it gets and complete."
