Apatosaurus Dinosaur Topiaries in Fremont, Seattle

By on Oct 22, 2009 in Washington |

The Fremont section of Seattle is home to some pretty weird things. One of the newer additions to the area are two large topiaries in the shape of mother and child Apatosauruses. These ivy-covered dinosaurs are a site to behold indeed! Especially, if they aren’t completely ivy-covered…

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.
