The biggest dinosaur to ever walk the Earth is coming to the UK as part of an exhibition at a museum in London.

A replica skeleton of the Patagotitan mayorum, one of the biggest members of the “titanosaur” group, will be on show at the National History Museum from 31 March.

The giant specimen, which weighed a whopping 57 tonnes - the equivalent of nine elephants - pushed the boundaries of anatomy and physics.
