American Museum Of Natural History Wants You To Help Name Its Newest Dinosaur

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) –  She’s a tall, lean, vegetarian. She’s familiar with Twitter. As for her age, she’s just 18 – going on 160 million. She hates her name and she needs your help.

The American Museum of Natural History’s newest dinosaur is Mamenchisaurus hochuanensis.

Quite a ma-mouthful.

So AMNH is asking the public for help selecting a nickname that would be more Twitter-friendly.

You can submit your entries for the new name here, or watch a video about the dinosaur below.

    My wife and I saw this exhibit on Sunday. It was a very interesting look at the true size of these creatures and how it affects their growth and the way they live. Amazing!
