The Saurusses are playful and spontaneous, snapping at hands and sweeping their tails. After a while they move on. Behind them a stunned audience stands and watches in amazement as the beasts slowly disappear…

They are presumed to be extinct, nonetheless the biggest beasts that ever walked the earth return to the 21st century and to the streets of Reykjavik. With a deafening roar these Saurusses charge through the crowds, looking for food to calm their hunger. People jump swiftly out of their way having never seen such giant beasts before. There is a widespread sigh of relief as the Saurusses start eating plant life. Ah vegetarians! Now people risk moving closer to view these prehistoric beasts better; the Saurusses are playful and spontaneous, snapping at hands and sweeping their tails. After a while they move on. Behind them a stunned audience stands and watches in amazement as the beasts slowly disappear…
