If you’re a dino nerd (and no shame in that), you’ve heard about the American Museum of Natural History’s newest tenant: a 122-foot-long Titanosaur, one of the biggest dinosaurs ever discovered. But he’s about to get some roommates. In “Dinosaurs Among Us,” the institution looks at how these now-extinct beings evolved into everyday birds. “Living birds share a common ancestor with dinosaurs like [the] Velociraptor,” says Mark Norell, the curator of the museum exhibition. (He named the Citipati, one of the dinos on display, so he knows what he’s talking about.) Here are our four faves.
“Dinosaurs Among Us” opens March 21 at the American Museum of Natural History.
