Update to Museum’s Dinosaurs App Adds Nine Species
by AMNH on
There are now nine more dinosaurs to explore using the Museum’s Dinosaurs app for iPhone and iPod touch, which this week added new chapters with detailed species profiles, photos and renderings, stories about specimens’ discoveries, and more.
The new chapters include a look at Mamenchisaurus hochuanensis, the sauropod known for its exceptionally long neck. With an adult length of 60 feet, including a 30-foot-long neck, and height of 11 feet at the shoulder, Mamenchisaurus is the largest dinosaur discovered in China to date. A life-sized model of this colossal animal is at the center of the upcoming exhibition, The World’s Largest Dinosaurs, which opens at the Museum April 16.
The app update also includes links to dinosaur videos on the Museum’s YouTube channel and recent podcasts. Learn more about the app here and download it for free from iTunes.
