A life-size replica of a Tyrannosaurus Rex skull has recently ‘hatched’ outside Lakeland Wildlife Oasis.

The skull – made from fibre glass and positioned on a stone plinth – has certainly been piquing the attention of curious passers-by. Taking a year and a half to build, the impressive-looking model now stands proudly outside the Oasis near Milnthorpe. Charity founders Dave and Jo Marsden are hoping to pull in dinosaur fans from around the country. The skull is nicknamed Lucy after the first hominin species ever discovered.
