Dinos Alive – The Exhibition is an experience that will take you on a journey to a time when dinosaurs were the rulers of the planets. Each day there will be five different tours around the exhibition.
The exhibition tells the story of dinosaurs from the Mesozoic era about 250 million to 65 million years ago. It’s a meticulous selection of the most representative specimens of prehistoric times that allow us to know about their behaviour and actual dimensions.
Dinos Alive is composed of familiar faces like the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptor and Triceratops and if you’re a dinosaur enthusiast you’ll be able to spot more obscure creatures like the Spinosaurus and Ankylosaurus, which will also be on show. There will be 25 amazing animatronic dinosaurs, of which three are roaring and moving Dino Rides.
Nobody will fail to spot the towering Brachiosaurus, a gigantic dinosaur recreated in all its glory.
Dinos Alive is endorsed by the University of Witwatersrand and is composed of25 life-size animatronic dinosaurs and hands-on activities for children, who will be able to learn everything about them from information boards.
The exhibition is currently showing at the Tshwane events Centre. It ends on May 17th.
Tickets are available at Computicket or at the door.
Dinosaurs are a diverse group of animals of the clade Dinosauria . They first appeared during the Triassic period, 231.4 million years ago and were the dominant terrestrial vertebrates for 135 million years. Dinosaurs are represented on every continent by both extant species and fossil remains. Elaborate display structures such as horns or crests are common to all dinosaur groups and some extinct groups developed skeletal modifications such as body armour and spines.
