Walking with Dinosaurs


Life finds a way… Now would be a good time to start humming the Jurassic Park theme song in case you haven’t started yet. There have been all sorts of rumors about a billionaire named Clive Palmer, or John Hammond as I like to call him, who has a secret plan to start cloning dinosaurs for his Jurassic Park-style resort. Are the rumors true? If he really is planning on breeding raptors, he needs to build better fences because the ones used in the movie were a joke.

These rumors came about when a man in Clive’s inner circle stated that Clive had a secret plan to start cloning dinosaurs. And why not? Clive Palmer is already working on creating a replica of the Titanic. He might have been just as excited as I was when he found out there would be a Jurassic Park 4. However, when Clive was interviewed to help clear up rumors, he stated that he had no secret plan to recreate dinosaurs, which is exactly what a man would say if he had a secret plan.

Even though there is no stated plan, scientists working with Mr. DNA have shared that a succesful clone of a Mammoth should occur within the next five years. The problem with cloning actual dinosaurs is that live DNA would be needed, and it is apparently difficult to find. I guess they haven’t tried looking for mosquitoes that are trapped in amber. It’s that simple.

Until then, I will just have to watch this video and pretend that it is real. This group called Walking with Dinosaurs has created a way to mimmick the movements of dinosaurs and have fun with it. It definitely don’t look as cool when I do a Raptor Run. I’ll just let to video explain the rest.

Anyone else curious about the legs behind the dinosaur? They also have a T-Rex. I’ll say that again… They have a T-Rex…
