DINO car with DINO

Fans of DINO the big green dinosaur at Sinclair gas stations can snap a selfie with the dinosaur Thursday before it embarks on a nationwide tour.

The traveling DINO (pronounced “Dye-no”) is not the same one who is always at the Maroa and Shaw avenues station. Nor is it one of several others at Valley Sinclair stations often adorned with hats or scarves, including the one who sported a hand-knit sweater last winter at Bullard and Palm avenues.

Instead, the traveling version of DINO is a 12-foot long, 6-foot tall fiberglass dinosaur who weighs just 75 pounds. DINO is an apatosaurus and travels on the back of a truck. He – actually his handlers, of course – will be tweeting his trip with the hashtag #DINO2NYC.
