Oh, to be eight years old again, and oh-so-eager to suspend all disbelief. . . this video had me laughing in pure delight:

The baby T-Rex, which you can obviously tell is an actor (see the legs?) is touring Australian schools to promote the show “Walking with Dinosaurs.” Don’t get me wrong – the show looks as charming as a James Gurney musical – but I really love the expressions on the childrens’ faces as they’re alternately surprised, scared, and thrilled. I think I just saw four or five future paleontologists spring into being. . .

Via, like, everybody. It’s dinoviral.
