Corydon, Iowa: Dinosaur Skeletons

Well built and spotlessly white, a brontosaurus and T. Rex in skeleton form stand next to a county blacktop. There used to be a Wizard of Oz Tin Man as well, but he's apparently gone back over the rainbow.

Dinosaur Skeletons and Tin Man

Large Dinosaurs

These large dinosaur sculptures are NOT near Leon, they are actually about 6 miles east of Corydon, Iowa on the north side of Hwy #2 on the Benny Davis farm.

Large Dinosaurs

There is a large and a smaller dinosaur sculpture on Hwy 2 (north side) between Leon and Centerville. I don't know the exact location but it is in a farmer's yard along the road very visible.
