Dinomall! Roaring New Dinosaur Attraction at The Dubai Mall

12 Mar 2014

155 million-year-old dinosaur is The Dubai Mall's latest addition and you could name it!

It's not what you'd expect to see while at the mall, but a 7m high Diplodocus longus dinosaur has been unveiled at The Dubai Mall. The attraction was kept a secret for weeks, with shopppers not told what it was going to be.  

The fossil is in the Grand Atrium and dates back to the Jurassic Period, 155m years ago.

It was originally discovered in Wyoming, USA, and was originally on display in Houston, Texas.

A mammoth 27m long, it has been put together by paleontologists, who will be on hand to introduce it to guests, who can see it for free.

However, one thing the dinosaur doesn't have is a name! A contest to choose what that should be is underway. Visit The Dubai Mall on Facebook or Twitter and use the hashtag #NameTDMDino with your suggestion.
