Bongoland. Ruins of Bongoland

Bongoland is a great stop, especially to let the little ones run around. But don't forget the bug spray. [Reagan, 01/02/2015]

I phoned, as suggested, but didn't get a call back. The botanical garden where the five "prehistoric monsters" are located seems to be open regularly. Later on the same day I went to a related commercial attraction, Dinosaur World -- compare and contrast!

Dinosaur. Ruins of Bongoland

Bongoland is one of the prettiest places I've ever been. The live oaks are worth the trip.

Bongoland Tricertops. Bongoland

Fantastic for someone looking for a good laugh. The gardens are very pretty, with Spanish moss hanging from large trees. There were five statues we found. The ever-popular "Tricertops" -- yes triceratops as misspelled on the sign, but corrected with a sign right in front of it. T-rex with a collapsed head. Stegosaurus is in decent shape but probably wouldn't have a neck and head attached if it weren't for the prop under its chin. A giant sloth; a small, well-hidden dimetrodon-like statue; and a pile of rocks with a name sign that escapes me now, but it wasn't a dinosaur name that I recognized so I'm not sure what it was. Well worth the trip if you're headed anywhere in Florida on I-95 and pass Daytona -- it really isn't that far off the highway.

Maybe the pile of rocks was dinosaur poop?
