      From a Protoceratops with hatchlings to a Tyrannosaurus rex, these robotic dinosaurs are fascinating to children and adults alike. Hear them roar, and watch them feed and care for their young. Learn which beasts may have been fighters and active hunters of other dinosaurs as prey and which creatures fed on tender plants. See the Pteranodon, the prehistoric sky king, whose wingspread was as wide as a soccer goal. Find out which dinosaur had eyes as big as soccer balls and possibly binocular vision. Understand how the horn-faced Triceratops protected itself from attackers and how much time the peaceful Apatosaurus may have spent in the water and why. Kokoro, the company that created the robotic dinosaurs, consults with distinguished paleontologists on all aspects of the creatures' attributes and functioning during development. Each creature is individually handcrafted and computer-programmed. The Museum's First Tuesday lecture series this summer will feature dinosaur-related topics. Be sure to join us in June and July for Fun Fridays which will also feature prehistoric creatures. And pick up unique dinosaur gifts in the Museum's Dragonfly Shoppe.
