Kids spot errors at dinosaur theme park

Dinosaur-mad children are costing a dinosaur park in Wales more than 100,000 by spotting glitches in the displays.

That's how much it is costing executives to buy new vegetation and consult dinosaur specialists about putting things right.

Plants flown in from around the world

The people in charge of the Dan-yr-Ogof Cave Complex and Dinosaur Park, in Abercrave, south Wales are flying in plants from around the world to keep the children contented.

They claim it's five-year-olds who spot the most misinterpretations, perhaps inspired by TV programmes and films like Walking With Dinosaurs and Jurassic Park.

They compare the tableaus with exercise books on school trips, and have indicated that some of the plants don't look like the ones that lived in the dinosaurs' time.

The children have also ascertained that the way the dinosaurs are positioned is sometimes wrong, because they don't reflect current thinking that dinosaurs were agile and athletic.
