In a clash between Tyrannosaurus rex and Triceratops, who would win?
There is scientific evidence that the two did fight and in a new exhibit at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington, you can decide for yourself who would come out on top.
Spectators can compare the dinosaurs’ eyesight, defences and natural weapons.
The show is called Battle of the Titans and it offers an exciting new perspective on the prehistoric beasts and the world they inhabited.
The exhibit is the brainchild of “paleo-artist” and self-proclaimed dinosaur geek Hall Train.
He collaborated with paleontologists, biochemical engineers, curators and museum designers to create some of the most scientifically authentic re-creations ever made.
Visitors can also take in a prehistoric puppet show, do cretaceous crafts and check out an interactive display that uses light and images to let kids digitally excavate a dinosaur.
The show is on until April 7, with special features next week during March Break; it’s sponsored by Pioneer Energy.
Admission to the Royal Botanical Gardens is $7.50 for children ages 5 to 12, $10.50 for students and $12.50 for adults.
