Caption: Technicians welding the metal skeleton of a robotic dinosaur in the workshops of the California-based company Dinamation International. The dinosaurs are sent out in travelling displays to museums around the world. The dinosaur's robotic skeleton is covered by rigid fibre-glass plates, over which is laid a flexible skin of urethane foam. The plates & skin are sculpted & painted to make the dinosaurs appear as realistic as possible. The creature's joints are operated by compressed air and the movements are controlled by computer.
