Watch out! Dinosaurs are making a comeback
THEY ruled the Earth for millions of years and now dinosaurs are making a comeback at Bristol Zoo Gardens this summer.
For three months, 12 life-like animatronic dinosaurs will be placed around the zoo.
The new residents will include some of the most popular dinosaur species, such as the tyrannosaurus rex, triceratops and the long-necked brachiosaurus, all of which will be brought to life using mechanical technology and animatronics.
The exhibition, called DinoZoo, will be open every day from Friday, May 25 until Sunday September 2, and is free with zoo admission.

It will give visitors the chance to get up-close to moving, roaring, hissing, growling and even water-spraying creatures they have only read about in books or seen in films.
Over the past two weeks Bristol Zoo has been giving clues about its summer spectacle via Facebook and Twitter, and even placed a car, seemingly crushed by a huge creature and surrounded by T-rex footprints, in Broadmead.
Owain Cassidy, head of marketing and development at Bristol Zoo, said: "We are always looking for new and exciting ways to entertain, inspire and educate our visitors, and this year is no exception.
"DinoZoo is sure to be a fantastically popular new attraction that will take our guests on a journey that started 65 million years ago."
In celebration of its new residents, Bristol Zoo is selling dinosaur-related toys and gifts and re-named it's snack hut the 'Snackosaurus'.
