Elberta, Alabama: Dinosaurs in the WoodsFour realistic dinosaurs appear to be strolling through the woods, far from any logical tourist attraction.

Visitor Tips and News About Dinosaurs in the Woods
The first three dinosaurs were on the right side of the road, just past Bamahenge. The fourth was more difficult to access -- because of the ditch on the left side of the road, it was too steep to pull over.[Selena Price, 03/30/2014]
We were expecting these to come before the Bamahenge, but they are just past it. Keep searching -- all four are there![Brandi, 03/11/2013]
Have to look closely in the woods or you will miss them. There are 4 dinosaurs in the woods actually -- a brontosaurus, tyranno, stego, and tricero. Also a statue of a woman surrounded by columns.[Jared, 11/28/2012]
Very cool dinosaurs. The details are incredible, including glass eyes that look real. It was a fun adventure looking for them, and having them all to ourselves to pose with in photographs.[William, 07/17/2012]
We were driving home from a little marina restaurant back in Elberta, Alabama when we took a detour to go window shopping for some boats at another marina. On this back country road, with no homes or anything, there are three very large dinosaur statues spaced out over a half mile sitting in the woods just off the road.
The statutes are very well done, have somewhat fresh paint on them, but seem to be there inexplicably. There's no sign telling about them, but at a quick glance, they look like real dinosaurs walking through the woods.[Justin P, 07/09/2011]
