Scores Of 'Saurs

We don't really want to see a dinosaur eat a child. That would be wrong. Entertaining? Perhaps. Be that as it may, if the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary really wants to thrill its patrons with its Dinosaurs Alive! exhibit of life-size, animatronic dinosaurs and demonstrate the glory of nature, letting one of the beasties take a nibble might be in order. There'll be plenty of smarty-pants tykes just waiting to correct their elders' mispronunciations and paleontological ignorance, and letting Mr. T. rex demonstrate those enormous teeth might teach them some manners. Just sayin'. Eleven giants will occupy the sanctuary grounds, located on FM 1378 south of McKinney. Call 972-562-5566 or visit for directions and info.
