Jake's T-Rex

























I've been passing Jake's Reptile shop for a long while and have been meaning to take some shots of his tyrannosaurus statue. So I stopped by this morning just in time to meet the shop's proprietor opening up the back gate to place his tyrannosaurus rex out front. Jake was kind enough to place the statue in a position of my desiring for this shot.

Coincidentally, this building was part of a business that I worked at when I was in my teens. When Jake open the gate, he revealed one of the original fleet trucks from that business, a circa 1960-63 Ford Falcon Ranchero. I used to drive those trucks all over the county.

If you're cruising down Beach Blvd., [a.k.a. Highway 39], perhaps you'd like to stop into the Reptile Outlet. Their website is here.
