People of all ages, especially children are fascinated by animals, hence zoos with different types of animals are extremely popular. Some zoo visitors are so fascinated by the animals that they enter the enclosure, resulting in injuries or death in some cases. Dinosaurs remain extremely popular though they are extinct, and the hit movies like Jurassic Park are an indication of the popularity of dinosaurs.

Many families and individuals visit a circus to watch the artists and animals at the circus perform. Interacting with live animals can be risky for circus visitors since the animals are unpredictable and may attack the visitor. Hence the circus can purchase a realistic dinosaur robot that the children and other visitors to the circus can interact with safely, without any fear of injury. The dinosaur robots available have been manufactured after extensive research, consulting the paleontologist who researched the dinosaur fossils available to create robots that are very similar to the dinosaurs that existed thousands of years ago.
People visit a theme park to take a break from the daily routine and are interested in finding something new and different. Adding animatronic dinosaurs is one way to enhance the attractions in the theme park. There are a wide variety of dinosaurs, which can be used in different sections of the park.

The latest technology can be used to make the dinosaur look real since it can open and close its mouth, blink its eyes, move the neck up and down, from right to left and vice versa, sway its tail.
Conserving the environment is a major concern for countries worldwide and it is important to ensure that young children are also aware of how climate change, global warming can kill different species. Hence including the different species of dinosaurs in a kids' science museum are a very effective way of teaching the children about the various dinosaurs that existed on earth, thousands of years ago and were wiped out completely due to climate change. Though they were very big in size, the dinosaurs could not survive the environmental changes, so in addition to getting information about the different species, children will also learn about environmental conservation.
