DINOS! Live at the Denver Zoo
Lions and Tigers and…DINOS?! Oh my!
We were recently invited to the premiere of the new dinosaur exhibit at the Denver Zoo, “DINOS! Live at the Denver Zoo” sponsored by Toyota. Readers, we had an absolute blast viewing this new exhibit! Huge thanks to Neda and Christine for inviting denv.her. out for a fabulous summer evening.
The DINOS! exhibit will be at the Denver Zoo from July 1 – October 31; make sure you do not miss seeing this awesome traveling display!
The dinosaurs in this exhibit are nestled throughout the entire zoo and you can go on your own Jurassic journey to find them all. From a Dilophosaurus to a Stegosaurus, you will see a whole line-up of prehistoric beasts. There are a total of 21 dinosaurs making up this exhibit and 19 of them are animatronic. We loved how lifelike (& life size) these dinosaurs are!
The dinosaurs can move their heads, blink and make noise in a very realistic manner! Can you say RWARRR!!!? We could/did…there was wine lol.
The zoo also did a great job in pairing each DINO next to a corresponding animal exhibit, such as the Brachiosaurus next to the Giraffes and the giant Diabloceratops next to the Elephants. An additional piece of the DINOS! exhibit is a fossil dig for those who wish to dig up some dinosaur remains for themselves. Get ready to channel your inner paleontologist!
If you haven’t been to the Denver Zoo lately, make sure to check out some of our favorite exhibits such as the Spotted Hyenas in Predator Ridge, the California sea lions in the Northern Shore, and the Giraffe Encounter. PLUS, there is a baby Giraffe at the zoo right now and he is the cutest little nugget. We also love the Toyota Elephant Passage that features Asian elephants, greater one-horned rhinos, and Malayan tapirs. These gentle giants stole our hearts and we can’t wait to visit them again soon.
Also, if you didn’t know, you can purchase wine and beer at the zoo! Don’t go about your animal viewing thirsty (or hungry for that matter)! Perusing around the Denver Zoo with a drink, pizza, or Dippin Dots in hand makes an outing here even more fun!
Do not miss “DINOS! Live at the Denver Zoo”.
