Australian Businessman Determined to Construct Real-Life Jurassic Park

Just months after making public his intentions to build a fully functional replica of the RMS Titanic, eccentric Australian billionaire Clive Palmer is already setting his sights on another larger-than-life endeavor: Cloning a dinosaur for a Jurassic Park-style attraction.

The Sunshine Coast Daily reports that Palmer is in "deep discussion" with the scientists responsible for Dolly — the first mammal successfully cloned from an adult cell.

A source close to Palmer told the Daily that the mining magnate plans to make a home for his cloned dinosaur inside his redeveloped resort in Coolum. If you're not into attractions that could go horribly, horribly wrong, Palmer also plans to install a casino and a mega Ferris wheel.

No word yet from Palmer on the veracity of this claim, but an official press conference is scheduled for Friday.
