And I’m not talking about Chicago winters but the new Ice Age exhibit at Brookfield Zoo. There are more that 30 life-sized animatronics on display and the exhibit, which will be open through October 30th, is free with a general admission ticket.
I suspect that, back in the day, the actual animals looked a lot scarier than the rather cuddly creatures that are meant to depict them. They appear more like something out of a Disney movie but then I suppose they didn’t want to scare the youngsters although, to be honest, not much seems to faze the toddlers of today. In fact, the parents were, in some instances, more enthusiastic about the exhibit than the kids.
