London Zoo welcomes robotic dinosaurs
London Zoo is welcoming a new star attraction this summer: robotic dinosaurs.
Visitors will see robotic replicas of Mesozoic-era dinosaurs, including T. Rex and Triceratops, which lived approximately 65 million years ago, at a “time travel safari” exhibit named Zoorassic Park. The robots make sounds and motions that mimic the real-life dinosaurs. Some even spray water at passersby. Information about the dinosaurs’ massive extinction is dispersed throughout the display. At the end, visitors are “transported” back to modern times with a video on endangered species, The exhibition runs until Sept. 3.
