A new gang of dinosaurs has come to town this summer at the Virginia Living Museum.

Realistic roaring robotic prehistoric creatures have been a popular attraction every time they've been featured at the Newport News museum. This year, for the first time, the VLM features the lifelike creations of Billings Productions, North America's leading producer of animatronic dinosaurs.

The exhibit takes visitors back more than 65 million years to the Cretaceous Period when Tyrannosaurus rex ruled North America.

Tremble at a growling T-rex, always a favorite with museum visitors and see new dinosaurs making their museum debut. Watch an Edmontosaurus mother tend her brood. There's even a nestful of eggs ready to hatch. See Euoplocephalus, built like a military tank and weighing in at 3 tons, and Styracosaurus, one of the most spectacular of the horned reptiles. The dinosaur that highlights the link between non-avian dinosaurs and birds is the feathered Citipati.

Also new this summer is Fossil Find, a tented outdoor fossil excavation area. Amateur paleontologists can search through a mound of fossil-filled sediment and then identify and take home real fossils. And they can help uncover real fossil bones of ancient whales.
