A local bank foreman is a victor in a contest to give a name to a massive skeleton exhibited in a Dubai shopping mall.
Bringing an ancient relic to one of the most modern and future-proofed cities as Dubai builds a symbolic bridge between the prehistoric world and the contemporary realm. Dinosaur devotee Johara Al Bayedh has proposed to write the following name on the title plate: DubaiDino. "It's just amazing to have a giant dinosaur fossil in Dubai,"she said upon her glorious moment. ”It's not just educational, but will make people imagine how the world was back then," she adds. More than 6,000 people took a shot at this unusual competition. The event attracted more than 6,000 entries.
The fossils belong to the The Diplodocus longus that is 24m (78ft) long and 7.6m tall. A group of archeologists celebrated a significant find in Wyoming in 2008. The skeleton’s age is estimated to be more than 155 million years old. One of the greatest things about these remains is that it is almost intact adding it to the list of the most complete fossils ever encountered, BBC says.
The contests’ winner will enjoy some leisure time on the fascinating journey to the Jurassic Park River Adventure in Florida. Johara Al Bayedh’ sisters will be more than happy to accompany their lucky sibling on this wonderful trip.
