Parque Temático Paleontológico Valle De Los Gigantes - Other Activity Sarmiento - Argentina

Welcome to Cretaceous Park! No, not Jurassic–all these creatures come from the last great dinosaur era. Replicas of reptiles found only in this region of Argentina roam the park garden. The eleven types of residents include light-weights like Aniksosaurus Darwini, which weighed only 50 kilograms (110 lb), and the herbivore Notohypsilophodon comodorensi (25 kg / 55 lb), as well as giants such as Epachthosaurus sciuttoi (10 t [metric] / 11 t). Sculptor Aldo Beroiza created all these life-size replicas in close consultation with palaeontologists and other scientists.
