A group of Burnaby elementary students got an amazing Halloween treat Thursday.
The students of Ecole Brantford were visited by a “real” velociraptor - named Vince - that wandered the playground - allowing the children to pet the dinosaur and walk along with it. Vince then came into the gym for an assembly.
It’s not a real velociraptor, of course, but a dinosaur that is part animatronic and part mechanical.
Inside is the dinosaur’s creator Kevin (who didn’t want his name used – he goes by Vancouver Dinosaur on Facebook), who wanted to do something special for his son Aiden for Halloween.
Kevin says this dinosaur has appeared in the Walking With Dinosaurs travelling arena show.
