A “dinosaur invasion” will settle in a tropical park in Florida

Miami (USA) / A lush tropical garden in Orlando, the Harry P. Leu Gardens, in central Florida (USA), will present from January 18 a full-scale “invasion of dinosaurs” among the dense foliage, with specimens such as the Daspletosaurus, 10 meters high.

“Explore the Jurassic gardens to find some of the most fearsome creatures on the planet”, the website of Leu Gardens encourages dinosaur lovers, a botanical garden of approximately 200,000 square meters dotted with jungle areas, lakes, ancient oaks and forests of camellias.

Visitors will come across more than twenty full-scale prehistoric creatures, from tiny 35-centimeter animals to the main attraction of the “Dinosaur Invasion”, the aforementioned Daspletosaurus, cousin of the terrifying T-Rex, from the Cretaceous period.

The pieces are durably made and hand painted. Each one is molded with clay and that plaster is used to make the fiberglass dinosaurs, Tracy Micciche, director of mechanical engineering at Leu Gardens, told EFE.

The creator of the figures in Guy Darrough, an expert and fossil collector who has worked in the field of paleontology for more than 45 years, explains the page.

Darrough has meticulously handcrafted each dinosaur to “ensure its authenticity,” making it “one of America’s most prominent dinosaur exhibits.”

The exhibition, which will be open to the public until April 18, allows the guest to venture through the lush garden landscape with a map and guidebook in hand and encounter two dozen dinosaurs.

When the explorer comes across one of these prehistoric animals, the guide informs him of aspects such as diet and anatomy in particular.

“Come and discover what life was like millions of years ago, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth,” says the web tantalizingly.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the organization requires the use of masks within the facility. (January 7, 2021, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
