Don’t play with your food, children are told. Yet in one
of Pittsburgh’s most popular playgrounds stood a dinosaur
that dispelled this notion. "Toroflorasaurus Carnegii"
was a magnet for children, standing sentry in Frick Park’s
busy playground at Forbes and South Braddock Avenues. Artist
Greg Sandor did his research before ornamenting the Torosaurus
with its food sources of ferns, club mosses, cycads, horsetails,
bushy conifers, fern fruits, and the fleshy flowers of cycadeoids,
all drawn from fossils.
