Utahraptor Goes for Walkies in Melbourne


No, we’re not talking about this utahraptor, unfortunately, but it’s still a pretty cool utahraptor.

What’s not cool is the budget cuts at Jurassic Park Melbourne that have reduced the animal park’s handlers to transporting their specimens on foot, with such minimal security. Someone could be hurt, or worse, the dinosaur might be injured!

Fun fact: one of the founders of Melbourne was a guy named John Batman, and he wanted to name the place “Batmania.”

    I love these things – I wonder if they’ll update them over time to match more ‘accurate’ depictions of the animals?  :)

    As a former street actor for a Halloween event, scaring people trying to take your picture/pose with you was one of the best parts of the job.  That puppet is brilliant, I bet the man controlling it had some much fun.
