The exhibition is created by Dino Don, Inc., the worlds' leading supplier of robotic dinosaurs to zoos and museums worldwide – and the only maker of full-sized dinosaurs.  The hand-made animatronics are uniquely created under direct scientific supervision.  And, unlike any other robots, they not only breathe, they even fart and pee, just like real dinosaurs did!
