Don’t miss Dino Jaws, an amazing exhibition from the Natural History Museum, featuring life-size animatronic dinosaur heads – including the terrifying T. rex!
Explore the sometimes gruesome, always fascinating, subject of dinosaurs and their food. From the notorious flesh-eating habits of T. rex to the vegetarian tastes of Iguanodon, dinosaurs had many interesting ways of catching their meals and eating them.
See up-close how their teeth and jaws moved together to tear, grind and chew food. You can also explore intriguing fossil evidence, hands-on exhibits and fascinating scientific insights that reveal everything we know about what and how dinosaurs ate.
Dig for virtual fossil evidence to discover what Baryonyx munched on, examine a huge poo to find traces of Euoplocephalus’ last meal and discover the chilling theory about the deadly Coelophysis’ dinner.
