Downtown dinosaur

Nothing will liven up your Melbourne shopping trip more than a Utahraptor out for a stroll.

The problem with the internet is sometimes how big it is. This brilliant video sneaked past everyone's radar two years ago, and it has to be one of the most amazing dinosaur puppets we've ever seen.

Seen here strolling the streets of Harbourtown, Melbourne, the dinosaur, controlled by a puppeteer inside it, was used to promote the Walking With Dinosaurs live stage show. Unfortunately, the show itself has come and gone from Australia, but it is touring Europe later this year.

We're disappointed. Partially because we'd really love to see the stage show now, but mainly because we really, really want an animatronic dinosaur suit.

If you're going to be in Europe on those tour dates, do yourself a favour and grab a ticket. It looks awesome.
