Aspiring paleontologists and explorers are invited to travel back in time for a Dino Adventure in Knebworth Park on Sunday.

As well as coming face-to-face with 72 life-sized dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures, The Ventura Wildlife Rangers will help guests hunt for hidden fossils at the Dino-Dig Paleontological Site.

Using specialist tools, they will demonstrate the techniques required to make great finds.

There will also be some dinosaur artefacts to see including giant claws and teeth (including those from giant carnivores Spinosaurus and Tyrannosaurus-Rex), giant egg replicas from Oviraptor and the world’s largest egg from the giant Hypselosaurus, as well as many dinosaur models.

Visitors will have hands-on experiences with the reptilian relatives of the dinosaurs, snakes, lizards and tortoises.

Adventurers who complete the Knebworth dinosaur trail quiz and find all the dino eggs will be able to claim a reward. There are craft activities to tackle too.

Knebworth House’s Martha Lytton Cobbold said: “The Ventura Wildlife Team will make this a really fun family day.

“I’m looking forward to seeing what reptilian ‘dinosaurs’ they will bring along this year.”
