Dinosaur comes to life at Natural History Museum
8:30am Friday 21st February 2014 in News
OXFORD’S Museum of Natural History had some unusual visitors yesterday as prehistoric artefacts came to life.
Half-term visitors were surprised by dinosaurs that were roaming the museum – with the help of Erth Dinosaur Zoo.
But it was not the recreation of the land that time forgot.
Instead, the creatures were giant puppets made in Australia, and operated by specialist puppeteer Steve Peck.
This prehistoric beast is a carnivorous theropod known as the Australovenator, the most complete meat-eating dinosaur skeleton yet found in Australia.
