Denzel the Dinosaur goes shopping at Clarks Village

Bristol Zoo’s best known dinosaur, Denzel, is heading to Clarks Village to go shopping.

He will be at the shopping centre at Street in Somerset between 11.00am and 3.00pm this Saturday. (Aug 19)

Life-like Denzel, who is four metres long and stands more than six feet tall, will be with his rangers who help look after him performing a special show.

It is the second time he has visited Clarks Village and last time he went down a storm with families.

He looks very similar to a T-Rex and has life-like blinking eyes, moving body parts and has a fearsome roar!

Paul Pritchard, marketing manager at Bristol Zoo, said: “Everyone loves Denzel and wants to have their picture taken with him.

”He likes nothing better than meeting people and doing a little bit of Saturday shopping.”

Denzel has an important job to do this weekend. He will be reminding people that they have just two weeks left to see the giant animatronic dinosaurs at Bristol Zoo Gardens.

There are 11 of them altogether including a Giganotosaurus, one of the biggest dinosaurs that ever lived, and a menacing feather-covered Utahraptor.

They are at the Zoo until September 3 taking visitors on a journey that began 65 million years ago.

In addition to the dinosaurs, there is a ‘Dino Hub’ at the Zoo where children can take part in a fossil dig, meet dinosaur experts from The Bristol Dinosaur Project and get involved in a number of interactive dino-themed activities.

Entry to Dinomania is included with normal Zoo admission and for all of August children go free at Bristol Zoo Gardens, so only grown-ups have to pay.

Bristol Zoo Gardens is a conservation and education charity and relies on the support of its visitors to fund its animal conservation work in the zoo and with endangered species around the world, which help save wildlife from going the same way as the dinosaurs - extinct.
