Chicago, IL – French Discovery Could Elevate Chicago’s Dinosaur Experience at Field Museum


Share post:

Chicago, IL – Chicago’s prehistoric ambassador, Maximo, may soon see his saga deepened after a groundbreaking Titanosaur find in southern France. In May 2022, Damien Boschetto, an amateur paleontologist, stumbled upon a nearly complete Titanosaur skeleton while walking his dog in a forest in Montouliers. This discovery, hailed for its unprecedented preservation, dates back an astonishing 70 million years.

Detailed in a CNN report, the French Titanosaur — a contemporary to Maximo’s species — offers a window into the lives of these titanic creatures that roamed the Late Jurassic epoch. Excavation of this astonishing specimen promises to shed light on the elusive details of their existence, from their anatomical intricacies to their ecological impact.

The Field Museum, home to Maximo, the illustrious Patagotitan mayorum, stands to incorporate these new findings into its exhibit, invigorating the narrative with fresh facts and insights. This paleontological synergy could provide visitors with an even richer educational experience, merging local pride with international scientific discovery.

Anticipation grows as the Cruzy Museum in France conducts thorough analyses, with potential implications for Maximo’s exhibition. This liaison between past and present, across continents, reinforces Chicago’s stature as a beacon for dinosaur enthusiasts and experts alike, eagerly awaiting the next chapter in the story of our planet’s gentle giants.
