Baby stegosaurus wanders around Grand Central Station prior to joining Jurassic World Live Tour

This is Olive, she’s two years old and still a little new to the big city. 

Like many New Yorkers and tourists alike, she wanted to see the famous Grand Central terminal before joining the Jurassic World Live Tour at Barclays Center in February.

Guided by paleo-veterinarian, John Palmeri, Olive attracted a crowd of commuters and even one police dog named Gleason.

“She’s an herbivore — don’t worry she’s not going to eat you,”  Palmeri told the crowd, later noting Olive’s particular fondness towards kale.

Coming in at a whopping 10 feet long, 6 feet high and more than 3 feet wide, she moves a little slowly (don’t we all sometimes) but still managed to find her way around the massive train station  as crowds watched in a state of surprised excitement.

“She’s one of 21 dinosaurs that will be on display with the Jurassic World Live Tour,” Palmeri explained, mentioning that Olive’s fully grown mother will join the ranks of those Jurassic creatures of the modern day. 

The paleo-veterinarian also said that the iconic raptor “Blue” will be at the show along side a species he described as a “diet velociraptor” because of its skinnier physique, along with some avian prehistoric creatures and of course a t-rex too.

“There’s actually going to be a surprise dinosaur that will be at the show too,” Palmeri said.

Before seeing Grand Central, Olive visited a few lucky schools in the city yesterday while John explained some prehistoric science to students of the modern day.

That was about it for her NYC tour though, that is until Olive starts roaming around at Barclays Center next month from Feb. 20-23.

Olive, like many humans gets hungry very quickly and had to leave the station for some breakfast after a scenic walkthrough.

It is not clear at this time if a stegosaurus, fully grown or in infancy, is acknowledged by the MTA as a service animal and permitted to ride on trains.
