Cabazon DinosaursThe yellowed newspaper clipping in the belly of a brontosaurus tells the tale of a man named Claude K. Bell and his life-long fascination with the massive reptiles of the Mesozoic Age. In 1964, 67-year-old Bell broke ground and started erecting the150 ton concrete, Dinney the Dinosaur “without the help of a construction company or investors.” 11 years, and nearly a quarter of a million dollars later, Mr. Bell’s vision wasn’t even halfway completed. Next was the Tyrannosaurus Rex––the undisputed king of the concrete colossals. The huge T-Rex, complete with a sliding board down its tail was finished shortly after Bell’s death in 1987. Remaining on the drawing board were concept sketches and models of a huge Woolly Mammoth, and a saber-toothed tiger or two.
