James and Louise Temerty Galleries of the Age of Dinosaurs
Level 2, Michael Lee-Chin Crystal
Go through the dino gallery. Turn right at “Age of Dinosaurs” and see Gordo, the long barosaurus to your right.
This long-necked sauropod from the Jurassic Period was one of the longest animals ever to walk the earth. When alive, the Barosaurus could grow up to 90-feet long and weigh over 14,000 kilograms.
Gordo is the largest dinosaur skeleton composed of real fossil bones on display in Canada, and one of three Barosaurus skeletons on display in the World.
