The World's Largest Dinosaurs, a major new exhibition coming in Oct. to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, explores the amazing biology of a group of uniquely super-sized dinosaurs: the long-necked and long-tailed sauropods, some of which may have reached lengths of 130 feet. The exhibition draws on cutting-edge paleo-biological research that looks in part to living organisms to make inferences about how these giants were able to thrive, as a group, for approximately 140 million years. Through innovative exhibits - including the exhibition centerpiece, a life-sized, detailed model of a 60-foot-long Mamenchisaurus -The World's Largest Dinosaurs takes visitors beyond the bones and into the bodies of these titans, shedding light on how heart rate, respiration, metabolism and reproduction are linked to size.

Admission: Members Free; Adults $14; Seniors, Students and Military $12; Children (3-12) $8
