If you were driving around Godshill on the Isle of Wight on Friday night — which, statistically speaking, you were not — you may have come across an enormous triceratops blocking the road. Don’t worry, it’s fake. And, you know what? Even if it were real you’d probably still have been in pretty good shape since triceratops were herbivores and it being alive would have bestowed it with the ability to get out of the middle of the damn road.
The enormous replica is called Godshilla, and it belongs to Martin Simpson who operates a store called Island Gems. He has no idea how Godshilla ended up in the street but he told the Isle of Wight County Press, “It must have taken five hefty lads to move it.” He also added, “It’s great people are talking about it, but I wouldn’t want to encourage anybody to cause a hazard for traffic.”

Godshilla has since been returned to its natural habitat. Simpson says that it’s actually due for a new paint job, and once he gets it back he plans on putting a fence around it to stop things like this from happening in the future.
