He’s scaly, maybe a bit scary, some 15 feet long, and usually spotted in the company of a singing paleontologist known as the Dinosaur Troubador. He’s the traveling T-Rex from Bergen County attraction Field Station: Dinosaurs, and he’s returning to libraries in Red Bank and Middletown this week.
A T-Rex from Field Station: Dinosaurs in Secaucus visited the Red Bank Public Library Saturday morning to the delight of dozens of children and parents, who formed a mob around the scaly, 15-foot-long puppet and courageously ducked its tail as it roamed the library’s West Front Street lawn.

The Red Bank Public Library is preparing to welcome an unusually old guest this weekend: a disturbingly lifelike moving, breathing and roaring Tyrannosaurus Rex.
While the 15-foot-long puppet is a pipsqueak compared to the 42-foot beasts that roamed the Earth 65 million years ago, it is certainly enough to thrill the pants off the kids who will gather to see it up close Saturday.
