Back in April, we dropped by Benton & Sons Fabrication Company to take photos of their three dinosaurs. What we didn't realize at the time was there was a fourth dinosaur in downtown Goldsboro, NC.



Earlier this summer, we were able to check out the awesome Dilophosaurus. Benton & Sons owner Ben Benton, Jr told us how the Dilophosaurus came to be:
The city called me. They display art on Center Street and they wanted to know if they could lease one of mine out here. I told them they were too big to haul. But I told them I would build them one and rather than lease it to them, I will let them borrow it indefinitely so they wouldn't have to pay for it and I get a little free advertisement out of it as well. They change those out every year, so it will be interesting to see if they actually keep this one. The Art Council said they like to change them out unless they find something they really like and then they purchase it. I hope it stays up but if not, I have some others interested. I've had a restaurant contact me right on 95. He wants me to put one out there, but we haven't talked about pricing or anything.
