DEEP below the surface, submerged below time, swam some of the world’s most amazing prehistoric marine reptiles.

Following the internationally successful Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo, the team at Erth have spent years scouring the seven seas, collecting playful prehistoric creatures of the deep for their giant Erth Aquarium.

For the very first time, youngsters can dive in and meet the aquatic critters in person.

What does a plesiosaur’s skin feel like?

How big are a kronosauru’s teeth?

And do kimberella even wear shoes?

Skilled handlers will be able to answer all those questions and more in the once-in-a-lifetime interactive theatre experience at Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre later this month.

At each show, the performers will invite a small number of carefully selected young divers to join them on their quest to the bottom of the ocean to swim with an amazing array of aquatic creatures from bygone eras.

Connecting young audiences to the real science of palaeontology, Erth’s prehistoric creatures are unmistakeably “alive” and mostly friendly in a fun, educational and unique performance to delight audiences from five years old and up.

n The Mandurah Coastal Times has five family passes to give away to either the morning or evening show on Tuesday, August 22.
