5-21: Dinosaurs!

Posted By on Tue, May 19, 2009 at 4:07 PM

One of our all-time favorite summertime attractions returns to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo today. The 18 robotic prehistoric creatures that make up Dinosaurs! may not eat, breathe and poop like all the other critters that live at the zoo, but they certainly look real. There are a few new dinos this year (including something nicknamed the Elvisaurus, because of a crest on the top of its head, thankyouverymuch), but our favorite is the ol’ T. rex, a 20-foot-tall behemoth with razor-sharp teeth and a taste for baby monkeys. The monsters are at the zoo (3900 Wildlife Way, 216.661.6500) through September 13. Admission is $1 with paid zoo admission, $7-$10. It’s open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. daily. — Michael Gallucci
