The newly-discovered 122-foot-long dinosaur goes on display Friday at the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan.

The mysterious dinosaur was discovered in the Patagonian desert region of Argentina in 2014. Based on its characteristics, it was placed in the titanosaur group, which is known for its giant lizard-like appearance.
