The children from St Paul’s Primary in Whitechapel were on a visit to The Sun newspaper offices at Wapping for the launch of a Summer of Dinosaurs’ promotion.
The mini-monster comes from the live Walking with Dinosaurs’ show being staged at the O2 arena in North Greenwich in August, with its amazing animatronic models.
Here’s the secret... inside the scary dino is a human driver who controls the body. Off-stage, the monster’s head, tail and legs are worked by two voodoo’ puppeteers moving mini versions of T Rex with a computer that sends signals to the life-size creature.
