Dinosaurs may have been prehistoric creatures that roamed the earth millions of years ago, but they also have captured the hearts and attention of many people around the world today.

It is especially interesting when a new type of dinosaur is discovered, and it recently took place in an interesting Way in Perth, Australia.

I’d like to introduce you to the “Bagasaurus,” a dinosaur that was created during a time when a family was on lockdown in a hotel.

They were quarantined due to the coronavirus pandemic, but they didn’t let it stop their creativity. In the end, they built something that inspired the family and is now making the world smile.

It started out when Carly Catalano and her partner, Sam, were moving from British Columbia to Australia. They had their three-year-old daughter, Florence, with them. It was an exciting time, but they knew that they would have to quarantine in a hotel for 14 days before the move was complete.

What do you do when you are stuck in a hotel room with an active toddler for two weeks? Carly and Sam decided to make lemonade out of lemons and they got creative. They knew that they would have a lot of take-out bags and containers during their quarantine, so they used those items to build a dinosaur.

In the end, they came up with the Bagasaurus. This adorable dinosaur stands 5 feet tall and the little girl dressed up in a matching outfit to ride the dinosaur through the hotel room.

According to an interview that they gave to CBS Radio West, they are also growing wheatgrass, so of course, Florence is feeding the dinosaur wheatgrass.

This was an interesting way to upcycle some trash that would have otherwise made it to the curb. They also plan on taking things to the next level by recycling the entire dinosaur, except the head, which they will keep as a souvenir.
