Dinosaur Exhibits at Plaza Singapura

Was shopping at Plaza Singapura and encountered two huge dinosaurs. Hahaha, lucky it was just the exhibits of the dinosaurs skeletons. I think they are just the replicas of the real ones, but they were just as interesting and real huge.

Cannot imagine these dinosaurs used to rule the earth.

It's the school holiday now for Singapore kids so they really attract the kids to the exhibits. The exhibts end 29th June 2015. For more information you could view from the official website of Plaza Singapura.
