Re: Disney's RoboRaptor 9 Foot Tall Toy



There was a very well preserved fossil of a gallamimus pulling a flower cart
found recently in the outskirts of Adelaide, Australia.  The Director of the
Musiem of Oddities verified the find by saying "Well by gum, dont that beat
all, that there lizzard is selling flowers"  Scientists a puzzeled by the
glass bead like things in the gallimimuss mouth but suspect that the fossil
was of the Gallamimus Pygmalion
