A large yellow forklift reached into a box truck Wednesday morning and pulled out an unusual item — a full-scale dinosaur replica.

The tail of the rubbery triceratops wiggled as it was lowered to ground outside the Workforce Solutions Center at Catawba Valley Community College and wheeled inside. The mechanical dinosaur model is one of seven that will make the trip from the Catawba Science Center to CVCC to be repaired and refurbished to their former glory — able to move and make sounds. The goal is for the replicas to be an exhibit once again at the science center.
