Five years after their last appearance, dinosaurs are returning to Brevard Zoo for a jurassic good time for the whole family.
Sixteen lifelike, life-sized animatronic figures including the Utahraptor, a pair of spitting Dilophosaurus and the incomparable Tyrannosaurus rex will be featured in the upcoming exhibit. Its trail begins at the interactive Dinosaur Discovery Center, where guests can unearth a replica Tyrannosaurus skeleton, touch authentic fossils, and watch as volunteers prepare specimens collected by zoo staff in Montana.
“Our goal is to illustrate that everything we know about dinosaurs comes from the scientific process,” said Chris DeLorey, Director of Educational Programs at Brevard Zoo. “Because we can’t observe dinosaurs firsthand, we rely on the evidence they left behind to draw conclusions about how they lived.”
The exhibit, titled “Dinosaurs Are Back!,” is not included with general Zoo admission, and runs from Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017 through Monday, April 30, 2018. The exhibit will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. A ticket uncharge of $3 will apply for guests ages 3 and up, with the price increasing to $4 on Tuesday, Dec. 26.
