The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis welcomed a new dinosaur fossil Wednesday. “Leonardo” is a rare mummified dinosaur with preserved soft tissue.

The public can come get a glimpse of Leonardo starting Wednesday when just his tail will be on display. The full exhibit will be on display starting in March of 2014 in the Dinosphere.

Scientists discovered Leonardo in Malta, Montana in 2001. The Guinness Book of World Records lists the fossil as the best preserved dinosaur remains in the world.
