(Disclaimer: We don't actually let the dinosaurs drive. Their arms are way too short to do it safely. This should be common sense, people.)
Do other countries have so many roadside dinosaurs or is it just an American thing? Understandably, some of these prehistoric critters are advertising a museum or somesuch, but a lot of them are just hanging out.
These pictures are just the ones I've taken when I can get out my camera fast enough. I'm only covering a tiny portion of the highway-dinosaur-extravaganza.
Himself likes to play a little trick where he waits until the last possible second to say "ooh look at that!" Then I have to break my concentration, come out of my internet stupor, scramble for the camera, and roll the window down. Yes, we have manual windows; our truck is prehistoric.
Inevitably, the camera won't focus correctly or the battery dies just as I frame the shot. This is followed by several minutes solid of cussing and threatening to throw the camera out the window. Good times.

He's either a Packers fan,
or he's a debutante learning to
walk with head held high.
|Ok, a dragon is not technically a dinosaur.|
Probably because they have
better proportioned arms.

Pterodactyls are not technically dinosaurs either
and this one was in a laundry room,
not on a roadside, but still.
Isn't he cute?
Plus, I can make a really good pterodactyl sound.
