The Bronx Zoo’s Dinosaur Safari, featuring 52 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs and pterosaurs is now open for the 2022 season with an even more immersive experience than in previous years.
Guests can visit and learn about the prehistoric animals that once roamed our planet by walking through the quarter mile experience, where they can view robotic dinosaurs that roar and move just like how they did in prehistoric time.
Visitors can greet the giant 40-foot long Tyrannosaurus rex, the Omeisaurus, an herbivore that spans more than 60 feet head-to-tail and towers over the safari trail and the new Quetzalcoatlus, the largest known pterosaur ever to live will all highlight the diversity of life that existed 100 million years ago.
“Dinosaur species evolved and adapted physically and behaviorally to their environments in much the same way as species we see today.” said Jim Breheny, Bronx Zoo Director. “Guests visiting the Bronx Zoo today are encouraged to compare dinosaur adaptations to some of their modern-day descendants – like birds. We are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the zoo’s iconic World of Birds building in 2022 and take the opportunity to see how a wide variety of avian species from around the world have evolved to survive and thrive in different habitats.”
The exhibition is open to the public until Oct. 31, 2022 with access included in the Bronx Zoo Admission Ticket and is free for Zoos PLUS; Land & Sea; and Conservation-level members.
The Bronx Zoo is located on a 265 acres forest in the Bronx and opened in November of 1899 and is renowned for its leadership in animal conservation, animal welfare, education, husbandry, veterinary care, science and research.
Curators work to save, propagate, and sustain populations of threatened and endangered species and have educated and inspired more than 400 million visitors at our zoos and aquarium since our opening and host approximately 4 million guests at our parks each year – including about a half-million students annually. The Bronx Zoo is also the largest youth employer in the Bronx.
