Feb 15, 2013 – The roars and screeches of life-size dinosaurs will fill the Columbus Zoo … Once the exhibit opens, the eggs will be moved to the zoo, Stalf said.

Maybe I will read about Dino Eggs at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium  on April 1, 2013 when I again have access to 10 free articles from the Columbus Dispatch online.  Or maybe not.

The Columbus Zoo  and aquarium website says of the summer 2013 event:
