We're happy to introduce the zoo's newest prehistoric resident:
DWAYNE "The Brach" JOHNSON!
Elmwood Park Zoo is going back in time to the Late Jurassic period when this enormous creature lived- that's over 145 million years ago! Standing at 65 feet long and 35 feet tall, our new brachiosaurus inhabits the zoo’s pond next to the carousel!
Our dinosaur display also includes a velociraptor, an interactive dinosaur dig pit, educational artifacts and replicas, and a great photo op!
