Jurassic Trike



Norwegian artist and activist Markus Moestue is the mastermind behind this hilarious raptor tricycle. The dino-on-wheels is designed so that the legs look as if they're galloping on the ground as it moves. The dinosaur body is constructed of carved styrofoam coated with epoxy glue and fiberglass. 

While the trike is bound to bring smiles to many faces, Moestrue created it for a more serious purpose. He explained in an interview,

[The trike was built] "for a trip across the bible belt in Norway. It was a protest against the dogmatic religious education of children, and the idea originated from the theme-parks of creationists that teach children that humans and dinosaurs used to live together."
