Legendary guitarist Slash has supported an appeal to raise funds for improvements so people can look into the dinosaurs at Crystal Palace Park.
Real Name Saul Hudson, Guns N & # 39; Roses Band member has said that the dinosaurs, which have been based in the park since the 1850s, have a "special place" in the heart.
The lifestyles reconstructions of the extinct animals are a unique set of sculptures in the park and lie on islands that non-members of the public usually can not move on to. Sometimes a year, a temporary bridge is erected so that park visits can look into dinasaurs.
Friends of Crystal Palace Dinosaurs, which help maintain the sculptures, are collecting a new permanent bridge that costs more than £ 70,000.
Slash, 53, urged his 3.6 million Twitter followers on Saturday night (November 24) to help raise money for the project.
"If you feel committed, please donate to a place that has always had a special place in my heart," musician tweeted, while sharing a link to the page where you can make donations.
Slash has also donated a "very cool" item to The Friends of the Crystal Palace Dinosaurs Charity Auction, although just what that item will not be revealed until later this week.
Since the guitarist admitted his love to the dinosaurs, some have taken social media to respond to revelation.
Twitter uses @Hanepem said: "Who knew Slash loved the dinosaurs on CP! I mean who would not, but the picture of him who looks at the dinosaurs is epic!"
And the user @ianlendler added: "Seriously people, Slash are into the crystal palace dinosaurs. Do you need to know something more? Shock them with a few, mate."
