Discover Dinosaurs at Brookgreen Gardens
Chauncey Smith | 23 Feb 2018
The lowcountry region of the South Strand is home to an abundance of wildlife, from sea turtles and alligators to egrets and bald eagles. But of all the wildlife you expected to see on your vacation to Pawleys Island, we bet that dinosaurs weren't on the list!
Well, OK, you might not see live dinosaurs, but with a visit to the "Dinosaurs!" exhibit at Brookgreen Gardens, you can check out a large selection of super-realistic animatronic dinosaurs and learn all about these incredible creatures while on your trip to Pawleys Island.
Running daily from now until April 27th, the "Dinosaurs!" exhibit at Brookgreen Gardens showcases seventeen different animatronic creatures to discover, including stegosaurus, triceratops, utahraptor, megalosaurus and tyrannosaurus rex.
Each incredibly detailed dino contains sensors that control the eyes, tail, arms and head to interact with guests as they explore the exhibit space. Fascinating information and facts about each of these ancient species are available to learn about these incredible animals.
In addition to the animatronic beasts on display, kids can visit the paleontological dig site within the exhibit. Here, a recreation of a fossil excavation site is ready to reveal the secrets of the past as kids are able to use tools available to unearth "fossils" from the area. Also, in the indoor area of the Dinosaurs! exhibit, kids can take part in a dinosaur "dissection," with volunteers helping them to "dissect" non-latex dino parts. There are also make-and-take dino crafts that kids will be able to assemble and take as a souvenir of the exhibit.
The "Dinosaurs!" showcase at Brookgreen Gardens is sure to be a dino-mite time for families on their Pawleys Island vacation!
