The CosmoCaixa Science Museum is hosting the European premiere of Dinosaurs from Patagonia, an exhibition developed by the Egidio Feruglio Palaeontological Museum (MEF) that reviews the evolution of dinosaurs in one of the richest regions in terms of palaeontological remains of these fascinating animals.

Hunters, scavengers or herbivores, gigantic or small, feathered or featherless, bipedal or quadrupedal... The enormous diversity that characterises the dinosaurs of ancient Patagonia is portrayed in this exhibition, which contains 13 dinosaur specimens.

The star of the show is a life-size replica of the largest dinosaur ever known, the Patagotitan mayorum. Visitors will be able to walk between the legs of this Cretaceous creature, which was 38 metres long and may have weighed around 77 tonnes.

The exhibition, which can be seen until 2 June 2024 in Barcelona, contains more palaeontological treasures, such as another of the largest species, Tyrannotitan chubutensis, and some of the smallest, like the Manidens condorensis, weighing barely one kilo.
