Motel Dine A Ville.

Friendly Cartoon Pals

Vernal, Utah

Aside from Science, Hollywood and TV are responsible for our misconceptions about the lives of dinosaurs. Cartoon versions of dinosaurs are the norm more than the exception.

But we're not complaining. This adorable pink reptile beats seeing a stodgily rendered Apasaurus at the end of a long day of driving. It's in Vernal, Utah, a serious bone dig town, where there are plenty of other accurately depicted statues.

Update: After the closing of the Motel Dine A Ville, the statue was moved to a hill top on the east end of Vernal.
