Remember when eccentric mining magnate, Clive Palmer, started talking about building his own Jurassic Park? Turns out that it’s no longer the ravings of a potential madman: it’s real. Called Palmersaurus Dinosaur Park (really), it’s home to 160 animatronic dinosaurs that move, blink, roar and just look freaking awesome looking like dinosaurs.
They range from 2.4 metres to 22 metres in length and reach as tall as 10 metres in height. Heath Hewitt notes that there are your usual favourite dinosaurs like the the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptors, Triceratops and Brachiosaurus along with some lesser known dinos like Demetrodons and an Ankylosaur. Some dinosaurs are hatching from eggs while Pterodactylus are flying in the sky. This is as good as it gets, people.
