Dinosaurs LIVE!

Dinosaurs LIVE! presented by Metro T-mobile is a zoo-wide Jurassic adventure with life-sized animatronic dinosaurs included with Zoo admission from now until October 4, 2020.


Showcasing more than 20 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs and displays that look like the real animals that once existed! Prepare to see these extinct creatures come back to life in an extraordinary outdoor Jurassic adventure. Open daily during normal zoo operating hours, this exhibit will take you back to a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth.

Among the dinosaurs on exhibit, you will be thrilled to discover favorites like a fully grown “spitting” Dilophosaurus, a fast-moving carnivore named after its two crests, and of course, Tyrannosaurus Rex, whose name means “Tyrant Lizard King” due to its size and power.  The baby T-Rex looks as vicious as the grown one. You may also recognize other dinosaurs, including Quetzalcoatlus, one of the largest flying creatures to ever exist, Triceratops family complete with a nest of hatchlings and Apatosaurus is reminiscent of the famed Brontosaurus (he’s a close relative)!  Stegosaurus meaning “roofed lizard” is another well-known animal with broad bony plates from its neck down to its back, with the tip of its tail bearing long spikes for battle.  Our feathered Utahraptor will make you believe you are seeing the real thing with his 9-inch curved lethal claw!  One of our smallest dinos is a group of Compsognathus with the body size of a chicken.

You may be amazed to find dinosaurs you never knew about, including some with fascinating features, like Pachycephalosaurus – whose name means “thick-headed lizard”. Its thick skull was surrounded by blunt bony knobs and spikes, making it stand out from the other dinosaurs. Suchomimus is identified by its resemblance to the crocodile and you’ll find him lurking in the water. Edmontonia stands out as an armored herbivore with its bulky, broad and tank-like figure.  Megalosaurus, resembling the T-rex, was also a large carnivore, weighing as much as a Black rhino.
