Want to see Chinasaurs (Chinese dinosaurs, get it?)

As sino.uk reported previously, dinosaurs are coming to Nottingham. But not just any dinosaurs, Chinese dinosaurs.


The Derby Telegraph has reported that a dinosaur the height of three double-decker buses will help transform an East Midlands attraction into a Jurassic Park next summer.


Dinosaurs of China is appearing at Wollaton Hall and is a world exclusive exhibition of dinosaurs.

Dr Adam Smith, curator at the Nottingham Natural History Museum, Wollaton Hall, said: “The Mamenchisaurus will be the tallest mounted dinosaur skeleton in the UK, ever. In its rearing up pose, it is as high as three double-decker buses stacked on top of each other. Mamenchisaurus might have reared up like this to protect itself from large predators such as Sinraptor, the skeleton of which will be posed hunting Mamenchisaurus inside Wollaton Hall.”


Featuring fossils and specimens never before seen outside of Asia, the collection brings to life the story of how dinosaurs evolved into the birds that live alongside us today. With over 55,000 tickets sold to date since its opening on 1 July, the exhibition runs to 29 October.


As well as hosting large festival events including Splendour Music Festival, Wollaton Hall has also used as a film location for Wayne Manor in the 2012 Batman: The Dark Knight Rises.
