Dinosaur Invasion: Explore-a-saurus exhibition at Scitech, Perth, Western Australia

This exhibition allows visitors the opportunity to step into the shoes of a palaeontologist and get up-close-and-personal with seven incredible animatronic dinosaurs including Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Muttaburrasaurus and the King of the Cretaceous Period, the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Visitors can uncover the secrets behind fossils and learn how these prehistoric creatures lived.

They can also test their strength against a T-Rex jaw, compare the types of plants they ate, examine insects under a microscope and recreate the sounds they made.

With 16 interactive displays in total, visitors can discover how dinosaurs saw the world around them, how they hid from their prey and even how they digested their food.

As well as invading Scitech, three of the dinosaurs have also invaded the ScitechWA Facebook account with Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops and Muttaburrasaurus (Australia’s very own dino) each posting regular updates throughout the exhibition.

Explore-a-saurus was developed by Scienceworks, Museum Victoria.
