On this day in dinosaurs, we remember the final day of the American Museum of Natural History’s World’s Largest Dinosaurs exhibition in New York City. The exhibit focused on long-necked sauropod dinosaurs, highlighting their development from eggs to adults. Visitors were treated to enormous fossil bones, a full-size Mamenchisaurus model with video of its innards projected onto its body, and a 5 foot cube filled with a representation of just how many leaves these giants had to munch in a single day–over a thousand pounds.

After a successful run in NYC, the exhibition began traveling through other major natural history museums and is still touring today.

Incidentally, today also marks the last day for another astounding exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History. If you want one last look at the sensational Dinosaurs Among Us–spotlighting the evolution of avian dinosaurs–today’s your last chance!
