(WCYB)  "Jurassic Park" first hit theaters in 1993 and it ignited a fascination with dinosaurs. That fascination led one Sullivan County, Tennessee man to create his own life-sized dinosaur. Then he created another, and then another, until now he's got about two dozen of them in his backyard.

Everywhere you turn in Chris Kastner's backyard you'll find some form of dinosaur.  They're in flower beds, they're in the trees, they're hiding everywhere.

"I started because I wanted my own life-sized dinosaur. I couldn't afford one or get one anywhere else, so I had to build one. That led me through the whole process of figuring it out," Chris says.
