The rumours are true! Peter the T. rex has extended his stay until the end of 2023.
If you haven’t had a chance to meet Peter, You’ve now got extra time to visit!
Bring your friends and family along to visit (or revisit) this magnificent 12-metre-long king of the dinosaurs. Peter is one of the rarest, and most complete T. rex skeletons in the world.
A T. rex skeleton is an incredibly rare sight in New Zealand and one containing real bones is even rarer, as most of the examples in museums are replicas. But what makes this example ultra rare is its stunning black colour, caused by mineral deposits on the bones.
