The dinosaurs from the Carnegie Museum’s DinoMite Days were all adopted and moved to their new homes years ago. A handful remain scattered around the city in public places and those are the ones we’ve included in this website.

This is Bill Dollarsaurus. They list the artist as Dymun and Company, but they're not really artists, per se. They're a think tank/PR company. Since this dino was sponsored by Dollar Bank, it appears that the bank’s PR firm came up with a clever way to brand the dino without really needing to hire an artist. They did a take off on the classic pink piggy bank with a dollar bill in the slot. Simple and effective. His name may be Bill Dollarsaurus, but most refer to him as The Dollar Bank Dinosaur.
