What do you get when mix 50 elementary school kids with an authentic-looking prehistoric creature? Chaos. And screaming. Lots of screaming.

That was the scene at Phoenix, Arizona’s US Airways Center Monday when students from Liberty Traditional School met a baby Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The event was part of a preview of an upcoming show at the center called “Walking with Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular”, which features a variety of realistic, life-sized dinosaur puppet-costumes operated by one or more people.
