Two of New Mexico's Jurassic giants face off in the center of this exhibit. The reconstructed skeleton of New Mexico's largest Jurassic predator, the 40-foot (12-meter) long Saurophaganax, is shown attacking one of the longest dinosarus that ever lived, the 110-foot (33-meter) long "earth-shaker," Seismosaurus.
