Extended through October 27

ZooNorth transforms into a prehistoric jungle with over two dozen larger-than-life dinosaurs waiting to be discovered. From the ferocious T. rex to the feathered Citipati, explore giants that roamed the earth long ago, and see how Dallas Zoo animals are related to these creatures of the past. This exhibit extends throughout ZooNorth, and you’ll learn how dinosaurs are connected to the animals you see here at the zoo and what part you play in their survival.
