Is this the most unusual job in Bristol? Dinosaur keepers wanted at Bristol Zoo
Bristol Zoo Gardens is on the lookout for a candidate for perhaps the most unusual job in Bristol.
The attraction has posted a job advert for three dinosaur keepers to keep a watchful eye over 12 huge animatronic dinosaurs which will be visiting the Zoo this summer.
The exhibition, called DinoZoo, will include some of the world's 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.
Bristol Zoo's 'Dino Rangers' will lead dinosaur tours around the Zoo, give dinosaur talks and contribute to dinosaur-themed birthday parties - possibly while dressed in costume as an explorer, palaeontologist or quarryman.

They will also be expected to entertain and engage guests with the animatronic dinosaurs and also with the history and science of dinosaur discovery, with special reference to Thecodontosaurus – the Bristol dinosaur.
Simon Garrett, head of learning at Bristol Zoo, said: "This is certainly the most unusual job we have advertised for some time, but we are confident that the right person is out there and ready to take on the challenge of looking after the most unruly inhabitants the Zoo has ever had."
