Back in 1999 Jon Hegeman and a group of other Fremont locals purchased the dinos from Seattle Center for the grand total of $1. With the purchase they had two days to move the creatures, and, with much help, they did.
The mother dino is about 66-feet long, and together, the dinosaur topiaries weigh in at about 5 tons and require about 7,000 ivy plans to cover them completely.
The dinos may seem like a strange edition to any town, but considering many of the other sites in the area, these beasts are pretty tame.
