    Dinny and Mr. Rex have been given new paint for the season. They had been painted for Christmas. I believe Mr Rex was painted as Santa Claus. This time Dinny was painted Pink and Mr. Rex has on a tux.
    To back up a bit Dinny was built in 1964 as a Roadside attraction in Cabazon, California just west of Palm Springs. Mr. Rex was built in 1981. Now there is a mini-theme park with many smaller dinosaurs in a fenced area. That part you have to pay to get in. From there you climp up in Mr. Rex. Dinny has a gift shop inside. You walk up the stairs in photo #3 which is inside the tail. It was Superbowl Bowl Sunday but the place was packed.
    Anyway Happy Valentines Day everybody!

      I love these critters.

      We have one on our M1 motorway that advertises the reptile park. I'm pretty sure it was 60s too. It's bright yellow, which is as realistic as pink or green, but no heart for Valentines.

      Thank you very much racer4four. I believe these shall soon be painted green for the next occasion. I shall look up yours. There it is, looks like Diplodicus.

      Yep, being Australian it has been named Ploddy.
      We never say a full word when we can shorten it and add a y or o to finish.
