This dinosaur exhibition "DINOSAUR UNEARTHED", which has been taking place in the shopping mall Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby, is attracting the attention of shoppers, particularly families, everyday. It's sponsored by Tourism Burnaby.
There are triceratops' horns, omeisasaurus' shoulder blades, a skeleton of yanchuanosaurus, and many others in the Atrium Court, and a life-sized model of tyrannosaurus rex, allosaurus' skull, mamenchisaurus' forefoot bones and so on in the Grand Court. Almost all of these dinosaurs are well-known.
Among them, the life-sized model of tyrannosaurus rex is about 24 feet tall and its head almost reached the 2nd floor. It moves its forefeet, neck and tail and blinks its eyes with a roar every 5 minutes. Shoppers often can't help but stop and look at the huge model and stare at this unusual sight. In addition, there is an indoor excavation site where visitors can brush off sand and find fossil replicas of dinosaurs' footprint buried there.
