Featuring the most frighteningly lifelike moving dinosaurs, this family blockbuster explores the sometimes gruesome, and often disgusting, subject of dinosaurs and their food.

From the infamous flesh-eating T. rex to the plant-munching Edmontosaurus, different dinosaurs ate different foods and often had unique ways of catching their dinner.

Life-size animatronic dinosaur heads, including that of the terrifying T. rex, show how their teeth and jaws moved together to tear, grind and chew food.

The dinosaur heads are partially open to reveal the bones at work inside, enabling visitors to get a close-up look. The exhibition also incorporates intriguing fossil evidence, fun hands-on exhibits, and fascinating scientific insights that reveal everything researchers know about what and how dinosaurs ate.

Visitors can dig for virtual fossil evidence to discover what Baryonyx munched on, plunge their hands into a huge poo to find traces of Euoplocephalus's last meal, and discover the chilling theory about the deadly Coelophysis's dinner.

And, because no exhibition visit is complete without a browse of the gift shop, we also offer a wide range of fantastic dinosaur merchandise at wholesale prices.
