A video of a dinosaur — actually a man in a dinosaur suit — navigating the challenging "American Ninja Warrior" test obstacle course has gone viral on YouTube with more than 205,000 views since it was posted Wednesday.

NBC's "American Ninja Warrior" puts athletes through the paces of a brutally tough obstacle course as they are timed to see how quickly they can complete it — if they do complete it at all.

The humorous video shows the dinosaur-suited competitor go through the FTC Ninja course in Palmetto, Florida, according to a Facebook post.

"If you're a fan of American Ninja Warrior, the high-intensity obstacle course reality show that tests the strength and endurance of its competitors, you'll like it even more with dinosaurs," Time's Maya Rhodan wrote.

"This T-Rex, well–human being in a T-Rex suit, showed up to the FTC Ninja Warrior course, which describes itself as 'a dedicated Ninja Warrior training facility' with 'over 20 Ninja Warrior specific obstacles,' and absolutely dominates the ramps, bars, and ropes in its path. That's especially impressive for a dinosaur known for its tiny little arms," Rhodan continued.

Tom Ley, of Deadspin.com, said the dinosaur-dressed warrior may be on to something with his costume.

"Even if you have no idea what 'American Ninja Warrior is,' I promise that you will enjoy this clip of someone running through a training course in a T-Rex costume," Ley wrote. "The lesson to be drawn from this is the same one the roller-skating raptor already taught us: dino costumes make everything funny."

The video caught the eyes of numerous people on Twitter, who laughed along.
