A few weeks ago we were invited along to Marwell Zoo to play a part in their amazing #HappyDinosaur video and we made friends with Velma the Velociraptor!
The Princess was amazed by the 'living' dinosaur and thought Velma was awesome. The Pickle was a little unsure at first but now talks about her to everyone - "I saw a huge dinosaur that danced!" and loves watching the video.
If you'd like to meet Velma the Velociraptor, she's starring in her own show at shopping centres in the South:
Sat 26th April - Festival Place, Bournemouth Sun 27th April - The Oracle, Reading Sat 3rd May - The Swan Centre, Eastleigh Sun 4th May - Cascades, Portsmouth Sun 11th May - High Street, Winchester Sat 17th & Sun 18th May - The Marlands, Southampton
This is all leading up to Marwell's Rise of the Dinosaurs summer event where the zoo will be transformed into a Jurassic jungle with animatronic dinosaurs including Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex!
Rise of the Dinosaurs runs from 23rd May - 2nd September and is included in the general admission price to the zoo.We love visiting Marwell and can't wait to see their new inhabitants!
