Last chance to name the airport dinosaur

Last summer, these two dinosaurs from the Royal Ontario Museum took up residence in the Terminal 1 International Arrivals area of Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.

The display features an “action” scene of a large Allosaurus bearing down on an Othnielia that has tripped to the ground. But it doesn’t include the ‘given names’ of these two creatures.

So the airport has been running a ‘Name the Dinosaurs’ contest.

I’ve suggested Bert & Ernie or Thelma and Louise.

Think you can come up with better names? Hurry and send them in. The contest deadline is October 31.

You can get more details and enter the contest here.

And don’t forget: there are also dinosaurs on display in at least two other airports in North America:

A giant replica of a Brachiosaurus skeleton towers over the Field Museum store in Terminal One at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport and, at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, there’s a replica of a 33-foot-long dinosaur in the airport atrium. The Yangchuanosaurus skeleton is on loan from Atlanta’s Fernbank Museum of Natural History.
