Pranksters deploy ultra-realistic dinosaur


Dinosaurs are a diverse group of animals of the clade Dinosauria. They first appeared during the Triassic period, 231.4 million years ago, and were the dominant terrestrial vertebrates for 135 million years, from the start of the Jurassic (about 200 million years ago) until the end of the Cretaceous (66 million years ago), when the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event led to the extinction of most dinosaur groups at the end of the Mesozoic Era. Until the late 20th century, all groups were believed to be extinct; however, the fossil record indicates that birds are modern feathered dinosaurs, having evolved from theropod ancestors during the Jurassic Period. As such, birds were the only dinosaurs to survive the mass extinction event.

Pranksters deploy ultra-realistic dinosaur
The dinosaur costume is worn and operated by a single person.
A man wearing a ridiculously life-like dinosaur costume managed to scare more than a few passers-by.
The hilarious stunt, which was pulled off by Australian radio hosts Hamish Blake and Andy Lee, saw their unsuspecting colleagues being chased through a car park by an eerily realistic Velociraptor.

It’s not the first time that this particular type of dinosaur costume has been unleashed in a prank video however it remains so impressive that it is very easy to scare just about anyone with it.

The reactions, which can be seen in the footage below, are about typical of someone who has unexpectedly happened across a 7ft dinosaur inside a deserted, dimly lit car park.
