As of January 8, Dinosaurs are no longer inhabiting the L.A. Zoo!

Thanks to everyone who attended this special exhibit.

Even though the visiting dinos are “extinct” at the Zoo for the time being, it’s never too late to share memories of your visit on social medial using #DinosAtTheLAZoo. We want to see your Selfie Saurus!

In April 2016, a different kind of animal arrived at the Zoo: dinosaurs. For a limited time, ferocious, magnificent creatures of the mighty Mesozoic era were “unextinct” – brought “back to life” in a previously off-limits corner of the L.A. Zoo for an experience that included photo ops and a dinosaur fossil dig.

This adventure wasn’t just about traveling to the past – it was also about life on Earth in the present day. Modern animals share many similarities with dinosaurs, including the threat of extinction.
