Event Description:

Dinosaurs presented by TXU Energy offers guests an exciting opportunity to take an up-close look at these massive creatures that once roamed the earth. 

Seventeen life-size animatronic dinosaurs are set amongst lush green trees and prehistoric plants that take guests on a winding path to experience up-close encounters with a lifelike Utahraptor, Stegoceras, Tyrannosaurus Rex, and more. The fully robotic creatures move their heads, arms, tails, and even spit water.

Along your journey we’ll help you spot the connections between animals at the zoo and these prehistoric beasts. 

Exhibit Dates:
May 25 – September 2

After your visit make sure to visit the modern dinosaur descendants here at the Zoo—birds! Visit them in one of our three main bird exhibits:

Fischer Bird Garden

Tropical Bird House

Birds of the World
