“Along your journey, we’ll help you spot the connections between animals at the Zoo and these prehistoric beasts,” the zoo wrote on its website. “Learn how these fascinating creatures moved, hunted, and reared their young in many of the same ways our animals do today.”

The exhibit is set to run from May 6 until Nov. 30 and will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the last entry at 3:45 p.m.
