Photo shoot with a tyrannosaur

I’ve been working for several months now on the text for an awesome exhibition at the Australian Museum about tyrannosaurs, and our house is now awash with tyrannosaurs.

So, it’s only natural to take our Tyrannosaurus rex for a photo shoot. I thought I’d share the results, cause they’re incredibly unscientific, and the kids and I had a ball! In fact we all had a ball, except for the ankylosaurus 🙂

Note the massive head balancing the long tail (this shoot may be unscientific, but we still shun the old-fashioned kangaroo-pose)

The ankylosaurus is on borrowed time. Our tyrannosaur is closing in….

And *sigh*…That was delicious! (Note the pneumatic skull, the robust jaw, the satisfied post-ankylosaurus grin.)
