An East Tennessee man has always had a fascination with dinosaurs.

Chris Kastner calls his latest addition to his dinosaur garden Stan, and it looks real.

"The teeth in our T-Rex were cast from real Tyrannosaurus Rex teeth. They have the sharp ridges like a steak knife that you see along the edges of them," said Kastner.

The idea began years ago for the Sullivan County man. He began with dinosaurs in flower beds and in trees, and his ideas grew from there.

Kastner welcomes visitors to his house. There's no admission price, but he encourages donations to keep things up. There's even a birthday party for Stan on June 14th.
