One of the highlights is “Gordo”, the Museum's massive 27-metre (90-foot) Barosaurus skeleton, the largest dinosaur on permanent display in Canada and one of only two Barosaurus skeletons on display in the world. Several of the dinosaurs on display are long-time ROM residents that have been remounted for the new display including Albertosaurus, Corythosaurus and a number of hadrosaurs that are easily recognizable by their distinctive tubular head crest, some measuring over one metre long. The most well-known hadrosaur, Parasaurolophus, a very rare species, is one of the ROM's best and most complete specimens. Other featured specimens on display include the full skeleton cast of a Tyrannosaurus rex and a real Triceratops skull.
