Hello!

My time had arrived to start the process of getting ready for my new look in the Dinosaur Walk exhibition, I had ALL these men fussing over me (which was just fabulous) making sure I was taken apart in the correct way. I’ve got a video of the whole thing, take a look.


Who am I?

Margie the Amargasaurus. You pronounce my name a-marg-a-saw-rus (Amargasaurus cazaui to be technical). I’m from Argentina and lived there in the early Cretaceous period (a long time ago).  Being a sauropod I walked mainly on four legs, but occasionally I had to reach up on my hind legs to bite taller plants. You can see me now at Melbourne Museum in the foyer standing on all four of my legs but I won’t be there for much longer! Read my blog and see where I am and what’s happening to me.
