How much more amazing can Dubai get??!!

All the Jurassic park movies we watched as teens got us excited to see this new resident in Dubai!! 

Right in the Grand Atrium of the Dubai mall, you have a 155 million year old dinosaur skeleton of the late Jurassic era. Could'nt have a more deserving location for the unique remains of a dinosaur, than the world's largest mall - the Dubai mall. The DubaiDino is definitely going to increase the visitor count to the mall, which also houses the Dubai Aquarium, Dubai ice rink, the Dubai mall waterfall and many other attractions.

It has been named as DubaiDino (after a winning entry from an open competition for naming the dinosaur).

The dinosaur was excavated in Dana Quarry, Wyoming, USA in 2008. Its has been air-freighted to Dubai by the EMAAR Group. 

This particular dinosaur is from the family Diplodocus Longus and is long-necked, whip-tailed and vegetarian. About 80 feet in length and 25 feet in height, it was discovered with all its bones intact, except for a few tail bones damaged by trauma either during a fight or bitten off. This particular exhibit with all bones intact is one of a kind in the world.

As tall as around five adult humans and as heavy as five elephants, we can only wonder as how the earth was during a time when these huge dinosaurs roamed. Simply Amazing!
