Dinosaur Invasion at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo

Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse, New York hosted a Dinosaur Invasion from May 25th to September 3rd of 2018.

The Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse, New York is hosting a Dinosaur Invasion this summer. The invasion consists of a set of gigantic animatronic dinosaurs which breath, makes sounds, move a little and even spit.

Below is a trio of dinosaurs you may be familiar with. Not sure if the coloration is scientifically accurate but they do make for very interesting faces.

There was even a family of Parasaurolophus’ with a young ling newly hatched from the nest.

Not far away was a Dilophosaurus hissing and menacing. It did not look like that one I remember from the first Jurassic Park movie but it did spit!

Thankfully for the purposes of this exhibit, the spitting was only water and not the thought to be poisonous mixture as depicted in the movie.

The invasion will last until Labor Day and is included in the zoo’s regular admission prices.
