100 Tiny Dinosaurs

On a dark and stormy evening at 11:54,

100 tiny dinosaurs walked towards the door.


They said hello to Horridus on display

Then one by one in single file they went upon their way...

A journey to welcome Victoria T. rex began

But getting lost in the museum was not the plan


They travelled high and travelled low

Their journey to Victoria T. rex was sometimes so slow

Those tiny legs worked hard and long

They explored and discovered so much along


They walked through the Dinosaur Walk surrounded by fossils

They felt so small being just little models

Gandel Gondwana Garden presented a challenge

They found dinosaurs and megafauna with claws and talons


They explored all the spaces, they were on the hunt

To find the Victoria Trex, they searched from back to front

They learnt so much about Dinosaurs along the way

They could explore all night and learn all day


Suddenly they found something exciting and new

A crystal T rex that was shiny and true

A code word with clues that had to unscramble

A puzzling puzzle to add to their ramble


The journey to Victoria T. rex the new addition

Horridus sent them on this very special mission

They are hiding here and hiding there

Can you find them everywhere?


Unscramble the letters to learn the clue

Can you help them – what will you do?

100 tiny dinosaurs need your keen eyes

Will you find them and the Crystal T. rex surprise!

Dinosaurs have escaped and are on their way to see Victoria the T. rex and are hiding from our staff. Where, oh where could they be? Join the prehistoric search and help us find out.
