The Hammacher-Schlemmer 20 foot animatronic Triceratops

Animatronic dinosaurs in museums and other places of public display go way back.  I understand that the 1933-1934 Century of Progress exhibition in Chicago even had them.

Today, thanks to Hammacher-Schlemmer, you can have an animatronic Triceratops of your very own.  Per the catalog copy, this "20' long animatronic triceratops...responds to onlookers with lifelike reactions and fortissimo bellowing."

I'm very glad the bellowing is "fortissimo."

It's all your for a mere $350,000.  Shipping not included.

H/T to Erin Murphy, who sent me the link back in August.
