Millions of years ago, creatures of immense size roamed the Kansas landscape. And likewise in the twenty-first century, located in southeast Kansas, resides another world of Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus, Pteranodon and Brontosauruses from long, long ago. Robert Dorris (deceased) retired from the aircraft industry at Fort Worth, TX , returned to Kansas and begin creating full-size dinosaurs.

Doris's daughter asked him to create a dinosaur and he said, "No!" Then he said, "I just started fooling around, you know, going to junkyards, welding stuff together." Bob has done a remarkable job on the "Dinosaur Not So National Park", using automobile springs for ribs, tubing and valves for backbones, bolts for teeth, old car hoods for wings, and transmission casings and oil pans for heads.
