The highly anticipated, breathtaking, gigantic dinosaurs are here; the biggest dinosaurs ever to be exhibited in South Africa. This new section takes The Dinosaur World exhibition to a whole new level with a towering life-sized, and 13m-long Tyrannosaurus Rex; side by side with the colossal 20m long Australotitan Cooperensis, the biggest dinosaur ever to walk on the Australian continent. Marvel at their 100 million years of domination of life on earth. You get up close and personal with the two; pat them, feel the texture of their skin, walk underneath them (yes, you can walk underneath them) – take selfies too! From the ripples of their skin to the glint in their eyes, you will definitely know, the mighty giants are back.
