Well the Missus and I trundled up to Stoneham the other day to Explore the Roar! at Zoo New England’s Stone Zoo (through September 6, advance online ticket purchase required) and say, it was T-rrific.
Take a prehistoric journey through time and walk among the giants that once ruled the planet in Stone Zoo’s all-new T. Rex Adventure!
You’ll come face-to-face with colossal creatures from the past, from a towering 42-foot-long Tyrannosaurus Rex to the 20-foot long plant-eating Plateosaurus. Nestled within the trees, bushes and undergrowth awaits an array of moving and roaring animatronic dinosaurs, as well as realistic dinosaur skeletons. Get colossally curious as you explore the Zoo to make discoveries and connections between animals from the past and present!
The zoo has thoughtfully provided a virtual tour, but you really should see the dinos in person.
The Stone Zoo is always a good time (especially the Boo Zoo at Halloween), the kids being as much fun to watch as the animals. Plus, the Caribbean Flamingos are a hoot, the Chacoan Peccaries are quite handsome, and the Mexican grey wolves are having themselves a moment, complete with their own live cam.
That’s noteworthy, given that a local Mom told us, “I’ve been here a thousand times and I have never seen one of those wolves.”
We saw four of them. You can too. Well worth a trundle.
