Dinosaur
Jensen, UT
The Dinosaur appears to be a Millecam statue although I can't find anything to confirm it. It was supposedly built in the late 1940s. The photo of the statue at the top left is from when it was painted pink and located at a Utoco gas station. Apparently, the statue was not painted pink for long since it was painted green in the 1950s. This gas station was either torn down or the statue was moved. In the 1990s, the Dinosaur Village RV Campground and Mobile Home Park was located behind the statue which was painted brown. [map]

Brontosaurus
Jensen, UT

2008:

2012:
This Brontosaurus, technically, a Sauropod, stands in front of the Dinosaur Gateway gift shop. The store was previously known as the Dinosaur Quarry Gift Shop. The statue originally had light bulb eyes and a leather saddle on his neck for photo-ops. However, by 2012, the saddle and stairs for photo-ops had been removed. A fence was installed to deter tourists from climbing on the statue. In 2015, the statue was repainted. The saddle was still missing in 2018. [map]

Stegosaurus
Dinosaur National Monument
Jensen, UT

2008:

2012:
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 tall. 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 more natural colors. It is now painted bronze. [map]
