Best school assembly ever: A lifelike dinosaur puppet

Boingboing recently posted a video showing a life-like dinosaur puppet, controlled by a masterful puppeteer, that brought delight and surprise to a group of Australian school children. I can only imagine my daughters hiding in fear as this thing lunged and roared at them! What’s so amazing is that the incredible realism of the puppet and its movements almost completely mask the puppetmaster’s legs sticking out of the costume.

If the kids weren’t already enthralled with the subject of paleontology, I’m sure they are now!

    WHAT?! That was so scary. Awesome for an adult, but dude they are so little – nightmares for sure. It was an amazing dinosaur, especially the way it moved side to side and kind of off kilter with that huge tail!
