    The Natural History Museum Is Displaying Its First Complete Dinosaur Skeleton In 100 Years

    It is the most significant skeleton acquired by the museum since the 1980s.

    This is the first complete dinosaur skeleton to be displayed in the Natural History Museum in London for 100 years.

    The Stegosaurus stenops skeleton is 150 million years old and measures 560 centimetres long and 290 centimetres tall. The sex of the dinosaur is not known, but it is thought to have been a young adult when it died.

    Stegosauri were herbivores and could grow up to 9 metres long.

    The skeleton will be on display in the Natural History Museum in London from the 4th of December.

    The stegosaurus skeleton will be on display in the Exhibition Road entrance of the museum. A previous version of this post implied otherwise.
