Giant Dragon and Other Farm Equipment Creatures

These are unfortunately not worth a detour. We noticed a few creatures on the side of the highway between Lucas and Beverly, but nothing spectacular, then saw a turtle or lady bug just before the dragon, whose head has fallen off. And that's it! The dragon is back in some trees, and you're going 65 mph, so the experience just isn't that noteworthy.

Cute! While the dragon sculpture is the biggest one, there are actually a lot of smaller ones dotting the landscape, so keep your eyes peeled!

Dream Dragon IV - Farm Equipment Creature

The Dream Dragon, the largest dragon ever made from farm equipment, is 60 feet long and 20 feet tall. The tail moves up and down in the wind. He also has a night image created from reflective tape. There are other creatures on highway 18 between Lucas, Kansas and Beverly, Kansas. Jim Dickerman, the creator, calls this his "Open Range Zoo." So far he has 15 creatures along the roadside.
