Dinosaurs invade Myrtle Beach

No, that's not a headline referring to the annual invasion of Snowbirds; Ripley's Aquarium will soon have a new seasonal exhibit. 

Construction has already started at Ripley's Aquarium for their new dinosaurs exhibit which opens April 1, 2012 and runs until Labor Day. The exhibit will feature animated dinosaurs along with facts posted throughout. An example given to The Sun News is, "the amount of food a T-Rex ate would translate into 2,000 McDonald’s cheeseburgers a day" -that's 600,000 calories if you're keeping track.
