Remember the scene in The Lost World when the male Rex is sedated and held in a transport cage before being airlifted into the cargoship? Well, I thought about doing a large carnivore sedated like this in a similar cage, giving the kids a chance to get up close and have their photographs taken with it. I may want to use the T-rex for a different exhibit, so maybe a Crocanthosaurus would do for this. It would be totally realistic with breathing sounds and nostrils flaring, as well as it's ribs raising in sync with each breath.
The model could be within a mock up of a 'secured' containment area where dinosaurs brought in are checked over by lab technicians in the presence of heavy security. The dinosaur could be undergoing health checks and or something before being released into its enclosure. At least that's the impression I want to create in peoples minds.
Do you mean Acrocanthosaurus? That would be quite some cage to keep it in! Are you talking a wood frame or metal? The breathing would be an excellent idea. Here's a little something I found on Youtube for this dinosaur:
A metal cage similar to the Rexes transport cage in The Lost World: Jurassic Park would be a more realistic option. I wanted to save the T-rex for other attractions so decided on this animal to be the sedated dino.

Maybe a nanotyrannus would work. It only is like 6'5" tall and 17' long. If it curls its tale up then it then it is like 9' long. You could make the cage 9' by 7' by 7'. A fully grown adult would fit in the cage.
