The Biggest Dinosaur – level 2

06-06-2018 15:00

The Field Museum in Chicago has a new dinosaur skeleton. It is called Maximo and it is the biggest scientists have discovered to date.

The skeleton is a ‘composite skeleton’ because the bones come from seven individual dinosaurs. All of them were found in one quarry in Argentina.

The species of the dinosaur is the long-necked, plant-eating Patagotitan mayorum.

Difficult words: skeleton (a human or an animal’s bones), composite (made from more than one thing), quarry (a deep large pit of stone), species (a kind, a type).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
