Welcome to Jurassic spark.

The U.S. Department of the Interior recently posted a photo on Facebook of a lightning bolt that looks amazingly like the head of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The bizarrely-shaped lightning bolt struck Arizona’s Petrified Forest National Park near a formation called Blue Mesa, according to the post.

The photo was posted just this week, but was taken by park ranger Hallie Larsen back in July, 2013, according to
