Was it an active hunter - the traditional image of T. rex? Or was it a scavenger?

Or could it have been something in between - an opportunist and an ambush predator relying on easy pickings, whether alive or dead?

T. rex: The Killer Question is a 3D blockbuster exhibition that uses terrifying animatronics, casts, static models and graphical displays to engage visitors.

The exhibition is divided into five scenes, which encourage visitors to evaluate T. rex's size, the power in its legs, length of its arms, the sharpness of its teeth, to decide if its physical features were best suited to catch prey or to steal carcasses.

At the end, visitors decide which side of the scientific debate they support.

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.
