I remember back when Jurassic Park came out there was a brief period of time where people questioned whether or not it was really possible to bring dinosaurs back to life. At the time it really wasn't possible, and to this day scientists continue to look for ways to re-create real dinosaurs through genetics and the tweaking of embryos. Of course, if the Jurassic Park movies proved anything, it's that bringing dinosaurs back into this world would be a tremendously stupid thing. We may think we know these creatures after years of studying them, but there's no way I'd be comfortable heading to the Bronx Zoo to see a T-Rex in a cage. You?

The closest thing to a real-life Jurassic Park these days, however, seems to be in a pretty cool staged production of Walking with Dinosaurs. The arena spectacle is available in several countries (UK, USA, Canada, Europe, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Taiwan and China), and when you see these things up close it's pretty damn freaky. If dinosaurs really did exist today -- and we actually found a way to bring them back to life -- is this what we'd be doing with them? Parading them around on stage, or walking them around on giant leashes?

The video after the jump appears to come from a staged stunt in Australia. Is this the closest we'll ever come to a real-life Jurassic Park. Watch the video and let us know what you think.
