The Biological Sciences Greenhouse at OSU has been fortunate to have multiple bloomings of the Titan Arum, aka, the corpse flower. They have its smaller but also smelly cousin, the Voodoo Lily. From its bruise-colored bloom that resembles a corpse, to its stench of rotting flesh, this tropical flower masks its beauty to attract its pollinators.
New Dinosaur Exhibit Roars To Life At Columbus Zoo
The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium has unveiled a new exhibit about some very old creatures.
The newly opened Dinosaur Island features 25 large animatronic dinosaurs that blink, swish their tails and make loud sounds. The largest is a 42-foot, 7,000-pound T-Rex.
President Tom Stalf says the new additions don’t seem to bother the zoo’s animal inhabitants.
A few of the dinosaurs will be viewable by any park visitor during the exhibit’s three-month run. Guests will have to pay a few extra dollars for a special ticket or wristband to see the rest. The area includes a boat ride and an archaeological pit.
