My 22-month-old son loves dinosaurs. LOVES them. Lucky for him, a colony of dinosaurs recently moved into the Forest Aviary in the Africa Region of the North Carolina Zoo.
After an hour-long wait, my sister and her family, along with my son and I, made our way passed the lions, meerkats, and chimpanzees before finally, FINALLY, getting to the Dinosaurs exhibit. Once inside I thought my son was going to explode out of sheer excitement like that dude in Big Trouble in Little China.
In front of him, hidden throughout the forest, were 15 animatronic dinosaurs (and some ancient plants <– boring). From a Brachiosaurus to a T-Rex to the spitting Dilophosaurus, my son was in Dino heaven.
