A video claims to show a newly-discovered living dinosaur species. Is this video real or fake?
Newly Discovered Dinosaur?
The video actually shows a Universal Studios employee operating a puppet. The women are employees working in the “Jurassic Park” area of Universal Studios theme park, as evidence by the logo on one of their shirts.
Despite a video description claiming a “shocking” new species, the creature in the video is the known dinosaur triceratops. This is a baby triceratops, as the horns are not fully grown. One of the workers can be heard in the first few seconds of the video explaining, “It’s a triceratops.”
Visitors can be heard in the background asking if the creature is real.
