Adopt a T. rex

Adopt a Species to give the perfect gift to the dino lover in your life … even if the dino lover is you.

It’s Dino Summer at the Smithsonian's National Zoo, and for a limited time you can adopt the unadoptable: a Tyrannosaurus rex!

When you symbolically adopt an animal — even an extinct one — you support Friends of the National Zoo in its efforts to help the Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute save species.

Packages at this level come in an animal carrier box and include:

  • 12" dinosaur stuffed animal
  • Postcard
  • Certificate

Shipping is free! Adopt packages ship anywhere within the contiguous U.S. (excludes PR, AK, HI and APO/DPO)
