Reiman Gardens dinosaur exhibit

The dinosaurs are here

Formerly extinct reptiles have come to life at Reiman Gardens as part of the gardens' 2009 theme "Landscape Before Time." Created by paleontologist Guy Darrough (pictured unloading a member), the "Dinosaurs and Other Common Garden Pests" exhibit features more than 20 realistic, full-scale dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures.

All sculptures are at the gardens through July 24, with eight remaining until Oct. 8. Reiman Gardens is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Summer hours (9 a.m.-6 p.m. daily) begin May 26. Photo by Bob Elbert.
