Anyone who has driven I-95 over the North Carolina/South Carolina state line is familiar with the tourist trap South of the Border (the numerous billboards advertising it make it hard to miss), but unless you look carefully you might miss the dinosaur there. Wearing a sky-blue sombrero, the almost nauseatingly-colored dinosaur grins at patrons of the gas station, though it does not look very much like any of the dinosaurs discovered in Mexico.

Vote for the dino you like best, now!
