London Zoo is welcoming a new star attraction this summer- robotic dinosaurs.

Zoorassic Park

Visitors will see robotic replicas of Mesozoic-era dinosaur including T. Rex and Triceratops, which lived approximately 65 million years ago - at a "time travel safari" exhibit named Zoorassic Park. The robots make sounds and motions that mimic the real-life dinosaurs.

Some even drip water out of their mouths or spray it at passers-by.

Information about the dinosaurs' massive extinction is dispersed throughout the display at the zoo in North London. At the end - visitors are "transported" back to modern times with a video on endangered species, recent extinctions and conservation efforts.

Many visitors to the London Zoo are thoroughly enjoying the 'almost' life like exhibition of the dinosaurs.
