Apatosaurus, which means “deceptive lizard”, is a huge herbivorous dinosaur that lived during the Jurassic Period.
Tyrannosaurus Rex, or “tyrant lizard”, is one of the largest carnivores ever to live on Earth. Its powerful jaw muscles gives it the strongest bite force of any land animal, living or extinct.
Spinosaurus, or “spine lizard”, is believed to be the largest carnivorous dinosaur ever. It is a huge fish-eating dinosaur with a series of spines on its back forming a sail-like fin.
Most scientist think its tall backbone are for mating or warning display, though some think it’s a hump for storing fat.
Stegosaurus, which means “roof lizard”, is one of the most recognizable dinosaurs due to distinctive plates on its back and tail spikes.
Considering its size, Stegosaurus has the smallest braincase among the dinosaurs. It can only fit a brain the size of a walnut.
The Velociraptor, which means “swift robber”, seen in movies and theme parks are actually modeled after its bigger cousin, Deinonychus.
The real Velociraptor is a turkey-sized, agile and feathered dinosaur in a family closely related to modern birds. Despite having feathers, Velociraptors could not fly or even glide.
Protoceratops, which means “first horned face”, is a sheep-sized dinosaur with a proportionately large skull. Large single-species bone beds suggest it was probably a herding animal living in the sandy Mongolian desert of late Cretaceous.
Do bring your family and friends here and have a education tour at the dinosaur exhibition at DinoTrek 2 Kuching. We are looking forward for the launching of the permanent Petrosains PlaySmart Science Centre in 2019.
