Does anyone remember or know of a particular packet trick that involved 4 or 5 cards with dinosaurs printed on them? The set I have has a father stegosaurus with a baby stegosaurus on the back, a mother stegosaurus with a regular bike back, a T-rex with a bike back, a T-rex saying, "BURP" with a bike back. I said 4 or 5 cards because I found a blank face with a bike back with the other 4 cards, but I don't know if the blank goes with the packet trick?

I don't have any idea as to the intended effect or the patter. Any thoughts?

Odd stuff there. I don't know the effect originally, but maybe something like this could be used?

Mother & Father steg have to keep either side of the baby steg. As long as they do, the T Rex goes hungry. If the baby is accidently moved from between the Mother & Father steg, the T Rex's stomach is filled and the baby steg card is not found in the pack. The blank back could hide the baby side of the father / baby card when it's feeding time.

This is thinking off the top of my head how I'd begin to build an effect and patter around it.

Hope this helps somewhat.

Obviously the T-Rex eats the baby Steg. leaving the blank card behind, and is then seen burping. Probably a packet effect released after Jurassic Park.

Method? I would guess similar to Emerson and West's "Gourmet Mouse"/Nick Trost's "Star Wars" card trick/my own "Dragon Tale" due for release later this summer.

A variation of the plot "Predator and the Prey" :
Display four cards representing Fox, Cock, Chick and the Hen, This is followed with a disappearance of a card.Something is wrong. When displayed the audience will see Cock, Hen and a Fox who has eaten the chick.

Another variation
Display four cards representing Fox, Cock, Food and the Hen, This is followed with a disappearance of the food(card going blank) and the Fox who has eaten the food.

The diasappearance in both the above effects has been represented differently.
