Please enlarge the photo as you cannot really see the dinosaur as it is long and thin.

One of the Main Attractions in the Natural History Museum is the extensive dinosaur display. If you go into the Natural History museum, this Diplodocus is quite literally unmissable! Not just because it is impressive, but it is just as you walk into the museum.

The Diplodocus is though to have been one of the largest animals ever to walk the earth. It measured around 26 metres in length.

This is not a real skeleton, but a cast of one that is in a museum in the U.S.A. King Edward VII (the the Prince of Wales) visited the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh and was so impressed with real thing, he asked for a copy. This was presented to him in 1905 and was placed in the Natural History Museum.
