“There’s a scavenger hunt so folks can explore the zoo, other habitats, and learn about the descendants of dinosaurs that actually live right here at the Dallas Zoo,” said Kari Streiber, VP of marketing and communications.

The event is packed with dino-themed activities, including fossil rubbings, exploring dinosaur caves, and marveling at nearly 40 animatronic dinosaurs. Costumed characters will also be roaming the zoo, adding to the prehistoric fun.
