It's no secret kids love dinosaurs. And the good news is that those of us in the Chicago area don't have to rent a time machine to see those prehistoric beasts; we've got four spots that highlight some prime paleontology. And these dinos, at least, don't bite.You might also like:

He doesn't quite fall into any known genus or species, but if we had to guess, we'd say this dinosaur most closely resembles a small-scale Diplodocus, the long-necked guy who ate an awful lot of leaves. Plus, given the 20-foot-tall Pumpkin-Eating Dinosaur's choice in snacks, he must be an herbivore. True, the handmade electronic creature is a bit more dragon than dino, fashioned from fiber glass and canvas and able to blow smoke out of its nostrils (along with growling and burping). But either way, he certainly tops the list for originality. Funosaurus Rex, perhaps?
