Cooper. Australotitan cooperensis. Reconstruction and LIFE-SIZE skeleton

Meet Cooper! Australotitan cooperensis, the biggest known Australian dinosaur, is finally revealed to the public.
This may look like a simple 3D-model but in reality it required many years of hard work - step by step, bone by bone, muscle by muscle. I’m so glad to see the results of this long-term process of studying and exploration!

A partial skeleton of this huge animal was restored and 3D-printed in life-size! And the final article has just been published in the PeerJ scientific journal: peerj.com/articles/11317/
Congratulation to all the authors! And a huge thanks to Eromanga Natural History Museum and Queensland Museum for this amazing project and especially to Robyn Mackenzie and Scott Hocknull - it was a real pleasure and a great honor to work with them.

The information about this magnificent discovery was published by the most famous media such as The Guardian, Daily Mail, The Washington Post, The Times, Der Spiegel, The New York Times, BBC, CNN, National Geographic and many others.
