Pet Dinosaurs Kick Kitty Butt

HILL CITY, S.D. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Dinosaur lovers can own their own pet dino.

The Black Hill Institute of Geology in Hill City, South Dakota, allows dinosaur lovers to own a prehistoric pet by selling exact, life-sized replicas of extinct creatures like a Triceratops, sabre-toothed tiger, and a T. Rex that stands 40 feet long and more than 20 feet high.

According to marketing coordinator Marion Zanker, the mega monsters tower over wimpy puppies and kitties in coolness.

She says, “It’s a little better than a pet rock, and it doesn’t poop or shed on the carpet like a dog or cat would.”

The prehistoric pets don’t come cheap though – they’re the replicas you see in museums and can rip up to $100,000 out of buyer’s wallets.

Zanker says the dinos are either purchased for paleontological research, to decorate people’s homes, for those with a love for prehistoric animals, or to spoil T.Rex-lovin’ kiddies.

Though you can do whatever you like with the dinosaurs, Zanker says you’ll need a large living room to house them.
