EXTRAORDINARY, EDUCATIONAL AND LOADS OF FUN
We are known for delivering some of the most meaningful and jaw-dropping experiences imaginable at the Zoo. This is our fifth time to create a special dinosaur experience. This one runs for six months and will showcase 20 of the most advanced and enormous animatronic dinosaurs ever created. Without a doubt, your family will have a roaring good time!
Adding to the excitement will be a laboratory designed as a bold and unique experiential learning venue for children and youth visiting the exhibit.
Stocked with real dinosaur bones from an active paleontological dig in Montana, children and adults will have the opportunity to use current technology to examine ancient remnants and be guided by trained staff to observe and understand connections between extinct dinosaur populations and today’s modern-day birds.
Dino Fun Facts!
Argentinosaurus, he was 35-45 meters long and weighed 100 metric tons. This may sound huge to you, but he wasn’t as big as the blue whales that are around today. Guess where he was discovered? Yep, Argentina!
Compsognathus–he was 60 cm long and weighed 5.5 kg. He was about the size of a chicken!
Gigantosaurus, he was 13.5-14.3 meters long and weighed 7-8 metric tons. Our favorite the T-rex was only the third largest carnivore. Sorry T-rex!
Ornithomiminee–he was 3-3.5 meters long and weighted 100-175 kg. He resembled an ostrich and could run at speeds of 40-50 mph!
Troodontids–he had the largest brain to body ratio of any dinosaur. His intelligence could be compared to that of a modern-day bird!
Stegosaurus–this poor guy had a brain the size of a walnut!
Allosaurus–his fossils were found in Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming. As if that isn’t enough, he was also found in Tanzania and Australia!
Eoraptor–he lived 228 million years ago!
