An animatronic T. rex at the Natural History Museum in London is rocking a festive new look.
The dinosaurs might be extinct, but there's nothing to say that they can't get into the Christmas spirit, as evidenced this week by an animatronic Tyrannosaurus rex that has been making waves on social media thanks to his rather dashing Christmas-themed sweater.

The dinosaur-sized sweater, which is adorned with snowflakes and Christmas trees, was created especially for its unique recipient by family-run company British Christmas Jumpers which has previously produced sweaters for singer Ed Sheeran and even the Houses of Parliament.

"We've never done anything like this," said director Snahal Patel. "My dad's never done anything like this and he's been in this business for 35 to 40 years."
"It's probably the biggest thing we've made and going forward into the future there are other big projects planned."

The gigantic sweater is around 12 times larger than a regular human-sized one.

Whether or not the firm will be making any more of them for the museum's other dinosaurs remains to be seen.
