‘Walking with Dinosaurs’ robot goes walkabout in Mexico

A remote-controlled dinosaur robot worth about £60,000 has been stolen from Australia’s "Walking with Dinosaurs" show in Guadalajara, event organisers said on Monday.

"Only in Mexico! How it happened, we don’t know. We don’t even know if whoever stole it knows its value," said Karla Arroyo, a spokesman for the show.

It was the first time an exhibit has been stolen from the show, which has toured worldwide and been seen by more than four million people, she said.

"Walking with Dinosaurs" opened in Guadalajara on Friday, and staff discovered that one of the smaller robots was missing after the show closed that same day.

The missing reptilian is five feet tall and moves by remote control. At around £60,000, it is the least expensive of its fellow robots at the show, which measure up to 42 feet and cost up to £600,000, Ms Arroyo said.

Despite the robbery, she said the show "did not stop".

"Everything went on as usual," she added.
