Dinosaur rEvolution: Secrets of Survival
Not long ago, what was known about dinosaurs was based almost totally on assumptions made from studying their internal body structures. The rest, including colours and skin coverings, was left to the imagination. Now thanks to incredible research and technology, that this time emphasises also skin and ornaments, we are now able to get a glimpse of the true, bizarre and complex nature of the evolution of the Dinosauria. Dinosaur rEvolution: Secrets of Survival explores the predatory prehistoric world of dinosaurs with animatronics, 3D models and fossil casts that visitors can touch. The exhibits are also backed with close-to-life-sized murals of all the protagonist species, fully fleshed, feathered and restored in living and breathing colours. A travelling exhibition by Luis V. Rey and Gondwana Studios.
