Pet a dinosaur at Jetty Theatre

YOU'D think the sight of a dinosaur would send a toddler running scared but it was quite the opposite at the Jetty Memorial Theatre yesterday.

The ancient, life-like creatures were an absolute hit with kids of all ages as Erth's Dinosaur Petting Zoo came to town.

Not only did they get a fantastic show, they had the opportunity to pet, feed and interact with all sorts of wonderful prehistoric beasts – from Dwarf Allosaurs and giant dragonfly Meganuera to the cute Dryosaurs and Minmi babies.

The show debuted yesterday and will be on again at 1pm Wednesday. Phone the theatre on 6652 8088 for book–ings.
