Dinosaur Park

Located just in front of the new Floating market this place brings you face-to-fate with life-size replicas of the creatures that lived 200 million years ago including a Tyrannosaurus Rex ( Tyrannosaurus rex was one of the largest land carnivores of all time; the largest complete specimen, measured 12.8 metres ( 42 ft ) long, and was 4.0 metres ( 13.1 ft ) tall at the hips. Mass estimates have varied widely over the years, from more than 7.2 metric tons ( 7.9 short tons ),  to less than 4.5 metric tons ( 5.0 short tons ),  with most modern estimates ranging between 5.4 and 6.8 metric tons ( 6.0 and 7.5 short tons ). tested dinosaur mass estimation procedures on elephants concluded that dinosaur estimations are flawed and produce over-estimations; thus, the weight of Tyrannosaurus could be much less than usually estimated ) a Velociraptor    ( Velociraptor was a mid sized Dromaeosaurid, with adults measuring up to 2.07 m ( 6.8 ft ) long, 0.5 m ( 1.6 ft ) high at the hip, and weighing up to 15 kg ( 33 lb ). The skull, which grew up to 25 cm ( 9.8 in ) long, was uniquely up - curved, concave on the upper surface and convex on the lower. The jaws were lined with 26–28 widely spaced teeth on each side, each more strongly serrated on the back edge than the front—possibly an adaptation that improved its ability to catch and hold fast-moving prey ). The park is set out so that you do get a very realistic idea of the size and power that these massive beasts had, especially when you see the fierce T- Rex  doing battle with a Torosaurus ( Torosaurus meaning perforated lizard, referring to the large openings in the frill; commonly mistranslated as bull lizard is a genus of ceratopsid dinosaur that lived during the late Cretaceous period ( late Maastrichtian stage ), between 70 and 65 million years ago. It possessed one of the largest skulls of any known land animal. The frilled skull reached 2.6 metres ( 8.5 ft ) in length. From head to tail, Torosaurus is thought to have measured about 9 m ( 30 ft ) long and weighed 4 to 6 tonnes ( 4.4 to 6.6 tons ). In 2010, research on dinosaur ontogeny growth and development of individuals over the life span concluded that Torosaurus may not represent a distinct genus at all, but a mature form of Triceratops ). Various other Dinosaur’s appear in the Jurassic Garden .

That would be the general conception of this Popular attraction. I first saw this when I visited Pattaya Floating Market in February 2011. But it was  July 2011 before I finally got to visit here. The Gardens look very impressive from the Sukhumvit Road, Jomtien. But inside I found it very tired looking and the gardens neglected. The Crocodile pen was not very well kept either. The staff seemed indifferent, and not very helpful. The Exhibits looked like they were all second hand, the condition was not what I expected.

This park could be turned into a great day out for the kids if only a bit of time was spent on refurbishing the whole of this attraction.

Open daily 10.00 a.m. - 6.00 p.m.

The general conception of this attraction is that it provides you with a setting that resembles prehistoric times. I first saw this Park when I visited Pattaya Floating Market in February 2011.

There were a few live animals on display here, bullocks and deer. But all seem very bored and tired. This park could be turned into a great day out for the kids if only a bit of time was spent on refurbishing the whole of this attraction.
