Just because you're supposed to be extinct, doesn't mean you can't still draw in the crowds.
A group of robot dinosaurs, including a life-size Tyrannosaurus Rex, have been visited by nearly 500,000 people since they moved into Edinburgh Zoo in April.
The gigantic animatronic dinosaurs, some as high as 20ft tall, have drawn in a large fanbase with their realistic movements and sounds.
With a Stegosaurus and a host of others dominating the zoo landscape, the ferocious predators even have a special, 3600sq m of their own – complete with tropical plants and exotic terrain set to mirror conditions from millions of years ago.
Launched as a way to lure in visitors and raise awareness of the very real threat of extinction to many of the world's animals, the Edinburgh Zoo staff are chuffed with how well the installation has been received.
Barbara Smith Royal Zoological Society of Scotland’s Managing Director said: "We are delighted that so many people have engaged with Dinosaurs Return! since it opened in April.
"The exhibit has had nearly half a million visitors so far and it has been incredibly popular with children and adults alike. Visitors have been able to see and learn about towering giants like the T-Rex and Brachiosaurus as well as connecting the dinosaurs’ extinction to the plight of endangered animals today."
Visitors have just a couple of weeks left to see the prehistoric beasts before it closes on November 1, with entry free with the price of a Zoo entrance ticket.
