BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Brevard Zoo announced for the first time in about 79 million years, six Diabloceratops hatched on the Dinosaurs Are Back! trail.
Tongue-in-cheek, Brevard Zoo officials said, “Mom and her babies are doing well.”
The Diabloceratops babies promotion is bringing awareness to the Brevard Zoo’s advanced animatronic creatures modeled after the latest paleontological findings. You can also uncover a giant Tyrannosaurus skeleton and watch volunteers prepare real fossils in the Dinosaur Discovery Center.
Diabloceratops was discovered in Utah in 1998. Named “devil horn face” for its intimidating appearance, this Cretaceous herbivore measured approximately 18 feet in length when fully grown.
