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.
