The locals tell us there used to be a small private theme park there with dinosaur statues. The location is now a truck parts supplier, and the other dinosaurs are behind a locked fence, but this bad boy keeps guarding the road in the years of his sad decline.
And yes, I know he's not a dinosaur, he's a mammal. Maybe a Paraceratherium or something, though the Holstein cow paint job distracts me.
At any rate, enjoy.
Here he is, in all his faded glory
