Tlajomulco’s jurassic park

This majestic fiber-glass creature is one of 39 prehistoric and extant beasts endemic to the state of Jalisco that are “roaming” the central divider of Avenida Aldolfo Horn in the municipality of Tlajomulco.

There, on a newly-remodeled center divider, the city has installed an army of large fiberglass renderings of prehistoric and extant beasts endemic to the state of Jalisco.  Each of the 39 specimens (which include a sperm whale, tyrannosaurus rex and woolly mammoth) are accompanied by a plaque informing passersby of their identity and history.  The project, announced by Tlajomulco Mayor Alberto Uribe last March, cost about three million pesos, or $US150,000, and was inaugurated December 15.
