The opportunity was too excellent. André Bisson immediately spent 1,000 pounds (about 1,200 euros) to acquire the animal without even asking the sender for details on its dimensions. While he was expecting an object at most 3 meters long, the 2-ton monster measured 6.5 by 2.5 meters high. The dinosaur was not only life-size, but weighed almost as much as a real one. The delivery company even had to exchange its usual trucks for a trailer and a crane to transport the animal.
