'Walking with Dinosaurs' eyes North America return

By

NEW YORK (AP) — The dinosaurs are ready to roar again across America — but they're sporting a new look.

"Walking with Dinosaurs, the Arena Spectacular" is coming back to the U.S. and Canada — its first visit to North America since its inaugural 2007 tour — and many of its lifelike puppets will be wearing downy feathers, reflecting recent discoveries.

The show, based on an award-winning BBC Television series, travels 200 million years from Triassic to the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, features 20 life-size dinosaurs from 10 species, including a mother Tyrannosaurus Rex and her baby, both of which will now have feathers.
