A titanosaurus will live in the main building of TSU
On May 19, at the Museum Night, an exhibit with the remains of a giant dinosaur that lived on the Earth more than 100 million years ago will be held at TSU. The titanosaurus, whose name is still kept secret, was found by the paleontologists of TSU and the Zoological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences and turned out to be a new species of the ancient lizards.
– The remains of the dinosaur were found in Shestakovo-1 in the Kemerovo Region, – says Stepan Ivantsov, a researcher at the TSU Laboratory of Mesozoic and Cenozoic Continental Ecosystems. – The size of the sacrum of the animal indicates that it was an adult specimen about 20 meters long and it weighed about 40 tons weights.
