Landisaurus Roams the Arb

Sev­er­al years ago, auto mechan­ic Richard Rivers looked at a bunch of left­over auto parts and saw a dinosaur. 

After spend­ing two decades grac­ing Duanes­burg Auto Care, the Lan­dis­aurus was donat­ed to the Arbore­tum, and fol­low­ing some cor­rec­tive surgery by Lan­dis friend John Scrima, includ­ing replace­ment of some ver­te­brae and oth­er impor­tant parts, the Lan­dis­aurus now lurks by the pond behind the Barn.

Please vis­it him — he’s friendly!
