LONDON – London Zoo is welcoming a new star attraction this summer: robotic dinosaurs.Visitors will see robotic replicas of Mesozoic-era dinosaurs, including T. Rex and Triceratops, which lived approximately 65 million years ago, at a "time travel safari" exhibit named Zoorassic Park. The robots make sounds and motions that mimic the real-life dinosaurs. Some even drip water out of their mouths or spray it at passers-by.[caption id="attachment_67657" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] A tour guide poses with a puppet of a baby T.
