The world's biggest restored dinosaur skeleton debuted at the Beijing Museum of Natural History on Tuesday. The exhibition will last until 19, April, 2015.


With a weight of 130 ton, the restored dinosaur skeleton is 38.1 meters long and the head is 14.5 meters above the ground. It stands outside the museum since it's too large to show inside the building. Also on display are rare fossils of dinosaur embryos.


Ruyangosaurus is a genus of the sauropod dinosaur recovered from the late Cretaceous Mangchuan Formation in China's Henan province. The excavation and recovery of this skeleton took more than 7 months.
