The 1964 New York World's Fair Stegosaurus was donated to the Dinosaur National Monument in 1970. The statue is 23 feet long and 10 feet high. It was painted green up until about 1995 when it got this more psychedelic look. In 2011, the statue was repainted different colors. In 2016, it was announced that the statue would be repainted to its more naturalistic and original green and bronze. [map]
