CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Alice, a 150 million-year-old puzzle with 248 pieces and hundreds of steel connecting brackets, arrived in Cleveland on Thursday. Alice is an allosaurus who, back in the day -- that is, the Jurassic period -- struck terror in her plant-eating prey. Her victims could not escape her strong claws and serrated teeth, each about 3 inches long. Her skeleton rose on a steel frame at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History on Thursday night. It took 10 people more than four hours to build Alice, who stands more than 7 feet tall and is 28 feet long from tail to jaw.
