King Kong nerd trivia of the day

This is a stop motion puppet of an Arsinotherium, a prehistoric mammal. The puppet was created for a projected called Creation, which was essentially abandoned for Kong.

Here's the same model on one of the Kong sets, which shows how deep these miniature sets were.

How do we know this was a Kong set?

Note the peg holes on the ground so the puppet's feet could be tied down into the floor.

Many of the puppets made for Creation like the T rex, Pteranodon, Brontosaurus and the Stegosaurus above were essentially then used for Kong.

Pretty cool!
