Australian tycoon builds dinosaur park

Sydney, Apr 12 (IANS/EFE): Eccentric mining tycoon Clive Palmer, known for his plans to build a replica of the Titanic, is creating the world's largest dinosaur park in Australia.

The businessman has ordered 165 robotic dinosaurs from manufacturers in China for the forests at his 150-hectare Coolum vacation property in the northeastern coastal city of Sunshine.

The dinosaurs will roar, wag their tails, move their chests and blink.

Some of the dinosaurs will weigh up to 1,200 kg and be 20 meters tall.

The manufacturers have already delivered 50 of the giant robotic creatures and some, including a T-Rex known as "Jeff", have been put on display at Coolum, the Australian press reported.

Palmer, who Forbes magazine estimates has a fortune of A$795 million (about $840 million), has apparently encountered problems in securing permits from officials for the park.
