Lon­don Zoo wel­comes a new kind of vis­i­tor: Ro­botic di­nosaurs

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

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 re­al­life di­nosaurs. Some even drip wa­ter out of their mouths or spray it at passers-by. In­for­ma­tion about the di­nosaurs' mas­sive ex­tinc­tion is dis­persed through­out the dis­play at the zoo in north Lon­don. At the end, vis­i­tors are "trans­ported" back to mod­ern times with a video on en­dan­gered species, re­cent ex­tinc­tions and con­ser­va­tion ef­forts. The ex­hi­bi­tion opens Satur­day and runs un­til Sept 3. — AP
