Now, after nearly two decades, a rift is developing between the famous battling dinosaurs. After noticing a lot of visitor-induced wear at the margins of the exhibit, the museum's staff decided to open up a pathway through the exhibit so that museum patrons can walk between the dinosaurs. For the first time, they will be able to get right in the middle of a prehistoric confrontation never witnessed by any human.
