NEW YORK - Even by the standards of New York's American Museum of Natural History - home of an enormousblue whale model that draws visitors from around the world - this is big.
A new, 122-foot (37-meter) dinosaur skeleton to be unveiled on Friday is too long to fit in the fossil hall and so its neck and head will poke out toward the elevator banks, offering asurprise greeting when the lift doors open.
The dinosaur, so recently discovered it is not yet formally named, is so tall that the cast of its skeleton grazes the museum's 19-foot (6-meter) ceilings, the museum that featured in the 2006 "Night at the Museum" film said in a statement.
