Here's hoping that more museums around the country take note of the awesomeness that is the balloon animal acrocanthosaurus. This 20-foot long balloon dinosaur was created by Larry Moss' and his Airigami team. The monstrous balloon animal is currently located in the Virginia Museum of Natural History, right next to a resin model of an actual acrocanthosaurus. For those who aren't crazy for dinosaurs, the acrocanthosaurus was a carnivore that lived during the Creataceous period.

The balloon animal acrocanthosaurus took a total of four days to create, a process which can be seen in the time lapse video, here. In addition to its inflatable dinosaur, the Virginia Natural History Museum also has multiple balloon flowers and bugs created by Larry Moss and his talented Airigami team.
