Sir Goony Golf Dinosaur
Dallas, TX

2008:

2018:
This former Sir Goony Golf Dinosaur has stood in front of different used car dealerships since at least 2007 and been repainted several times. By 2012, the statue was blue and white. By 2015, the statue had been painted its current colors of green and yellow. I assume that there was originally a Goony Golf course here originally rather than the possibility that the statue was moved here. For examples of these dinosaurs at Goony Golf courses, see this page. [map]

Dinosaur [gone]
El Paso, TX
This Dinosaur stood in front of the former Little Dinos Daycare. It had been there since at least 2007. The building had been vacant and the Dinosaur's neck had been broken, and his head missing since around 2015. This photo is from 2017. By 2019, the statue was gone and the building was housing a church.

dinosaur [gone]
Forney, TX
This dinosaur in Forney was located at De Ridder Antiques when this photo was taken in 2011. It appears to be modern. The statue was gone by 2018.

Trinity Lutheran Children's Center
Fort Worth, TX

2011:

2018:
The dinosaur at the Trinity Lutheran Children's Center is located behind the fence in the playground area. By 2013, the dinosaur had been painted bright green. The statue takes a lot of abuse from the children. [map]

Fort Worth Museum of Science and History
Fort Worth, TX
There are three dinosaur statues located outside the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. The first two dinosaurs shown above have been there since at least 2007. They were built in 1993 by the Larson Company. The third dinosaur, installed in 2009, is a topiary dinosaur, named Ferns Worth. It is 12 feet tall and 62 feet long. This statue represents the Paluxysaurus jonesi, the State Dinosaur of Texas. [map]
