Do Pet the Dinos
A young audience reacts with varying amounts of credulity to a carnivorous dinosaur on the prowl in London on February 18. Australovenator's walking tour was part of a performance by the visiting Erth's Dinosaur Petting Zoo, an Australia-based interactive show.
According to its website, the petting zoo allows children and adults to interact with and care for its prehistoric charges—including feeding and watering the "animals."
Why We Love It
"I love this photo because it perfectly captures the young girl's reaction to the dinosaur. While the older individuals around her are unfazed or amused by the creature, her youthful imagination has carried her away and convinced her that she is being threatened by the beast."—Lydia Mihaychuk, photo intern
