He's a big boy!
AND I FOR one wouldn't like to meet him on a dark night - or even a brightly lit night come to think of it!
This is 'Dippy' the Diplodocus whom I met recently in the Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery in Glasgow. His normal home is the Natural History Museum in London but he is currently on loan from there and is on a tour of the UK. He's in Glasgow for another few weeks before moving on elsewhere.
I was actually in Glasgow for another reason (of which more later) and, although Glasgow is my home town, it's been many years since I last explored the city centre so a wander around the West End (a hive of social activity in the evening) searching for somewhere to eat brought back many memories.
Sometimes it's nice to revisit old haunts and remember good times!
