Dinos roam town

It's not everyday dinosaurs are seen walking through downtown Vernon, but that is exactly what has been happening lately.

Two Tyrannosaurus Rex were recently spotted at the Castanet office delivering Brontosaurus burgers from Topping Expectations' restaurant.

The Vernon eatery will be selling the monster burgers every Saturday as part of a promotion for the Dinosaurs Unearthed exhibit at the Okanagan Science Centre.

The dinosaur display will run until Aug. 31. and features a wide variety of jurassic beasts.

The exhibition questions what people think they know about dinosaurs and presents prehistoric creatures in a new way.

It will show a life-sized juvenile Tyrannosaurus Rex sporting a coat of heat-regulating feathers and give the inside scoop on the ancestors of Triceratops.

The display also features fossils from China and North America, including skulls, eggs, claws, teeth and a giant forelimb and scapula, along with a full-scale Gasosaurus skeleton.
