Today, more than 1,000 different dinosaur species have been identified and named. However, this is a relatively small number compared to the 10,000 bird species and 5,400 mammal species that have been identified to date. Paleontologists believe that there are many more dinosaur species to be discovered.
DINOSAURS ROAR TO LIFE IN WORLD'S LARGEST ANIMATRONIC
DINOSAUR PARK AT KINGS ISLAND
Dinosaurs Alive! at Kings Island features more than 60 life-sized dinosaurs in a 12.5 acre Jurassic forest setting, including 56 animatronic models.
Highlights of Dinosaurs Alive! include the vicious-looking Irritator and its cousins the Baryonyx and the Spinosaurus, the lizard-like Stegosaurus, the meat-eating Tyrannosaurus Rex, the three-horned Triceratops and the flying Pteranodon.
Four of the dinosaurs have interactive consoles which allow guests to guide dinosaur movement so they can see how scientists believe each dinosaur moved its arms, tail, mouth and eyes. There is also an excavation site replica, a kids’ paleontological dig site where visitors can uncover prehistoric fossils, and a 1,500 square-foot dinosaur-themed gift shop.
