T. rex visits elementary school

A remarkable 2-meter-long, strikingly lifelike dinosaur puppet visits Bondi elementary school in New South Wales near Sydney to promote the live “Walking with Dinosaurs” show:

The only thing keeping it from looking entirely real is the pair of human legs emerging from the dinosaur’s abdomen. This is necessary because humans walk plantigrade (unlike birds, their dinosaur ancestors, and for that matter a lot of quadruped mammals) and hence can’t fake the leg motion of one of these guys.

Some sports team desperately needs to get one of these as a mascot…
