Back in October, The Children's Zoo in St. Louis closed for good, but something BIG is taken over that space.

St. Louis Zoo officials announced last year that it would be the last year for the Children's Zoo, which closed for good October 31. There were already plans in p[lace for what would take over that space in the zoo. Dinosaurs.

Early this morning the first of many dinosaur arrives at the zoo. For the next few years, 16 different animatronic and stationary dinosaurs will be at the zoo. We won't have to wait for long for the exhibit to open, looks  like it will be open April 21, 2021.

This exhibit is going to be amazing, and what kid (or adult) doesn't love dinosaurs. There is no word on how long the exhibit will be at the zoo, this is a temporary exhibit but, I have a funny feeling this is going to be such a popular exhibit with zoo visitors it may be around for more then a few years.

Visitors will be able to learn more about their favorite dinosaurs and in the end, education of all animals is what the St. Louis Zoo is proud of. You will have to pay to see the exhibit, but as always the St. Louis Zoo is free admission for everyone. To keep updated with the new dinosaur exhibit follow the St. Louis Zoo on Facebook or their website.
