Tyrannasaurus Rex Puppet at Los Angeles County NHM

I have written many times about my affection for the LA County NHM in the past. After seeing Dinosaur Encounters, I'm here to profess my love yet again.

From the NHM website:
To create Dinosaur Encounters, Museum paleontologists collaborated with puppet fabricators and performers to bring the dinosaurs to “life,” while still ensuring authentic detail and movement. These amazingly realistic creatures help us better understand dinosaur behavior, anatomy and survival tactics.
Bring to life indeed. When my sons and I saw the presentation, a fourteen foot T-Rex (seven months old according to the T-Rex wrangler) growled, blinked, played and enthralled the audience--kid, teen and adult alike. I can't recommend Dinosaur Encounters enough.
