Dinosaurs stomp into Bristol Zoo Gardens this summer

They ruled the Earth for millions of years and now dinosaurs are making a comeback at Bristol Zoo Gardens this summer.

For three months over the summer, 12 huge and incredibly life-like animatronic dinosaurs will be placed around the Zoo, taking visitors on a journey that started 65 million years ago.

The new residents will include some of the world’s most popular dinosaur species, such as the tyrannosaurus rex, triceratops and the long-necked brachiosaurus, all of which will be brought to life using state-of-the-art technology and animatronics.

This exhibition, called Dino-scovery, will give our guests the chance to get up-close to amazing, moving, roaring, hissing, growling and even water-spraying creatures they’ve only read about in books or seen in films.

Bristol Zoo Gardens is a conservation and education charity and relies on the support of its visitors to fund its animal conservation work in the zoo and with endangered species around the world, which help save wildlife from going the same way as the dinosaurs – extinct.

Dino-scovery at Bristol Zoo Gardens begins on Friday May 25th 2012 and is open every day until Sunday September 2nd 2012. Entry is free with normal Zoo admission.
