Images taken at Marwell Zoo. May 2014.
A little while ago we were invited to take part in the #HappyDinosaur video to promote the Rise of the Dinosaurs event at Marwell, so it was great to go back to see the life-like animatronic dinos in action. Armed with their cuddly dinosaurs, our little explorers went in search of some not so cuddly dinosaurs!
We saw animatronic dinosaurs at Twycross Zoo last year, so we already had some idea of what to expect, but we love how here they are dotted around the zoo, rather than all in one space, as it’s something for the children to keep looking out for as they’re walking around and you’re never quite sure where they will appear next! The interactive Deinonychus robot was very popular, but our favourite had to be T-Rex, who had trampled through his ‘enclosure’, knocking over fence posts and generally making a big mess (no-one’s going to argue with him though are they?!)
