World's Largest Man-Made Turtle

Venue Info

Erected as a novelty in 1982, the titan turtle (which naturally dwells in the Turtle Mountains) was welded together from over 2,000 steel wheel rims by George Gottbreht, the owner of Dale's Thrifty Barn next door. Its head alone weighs over a ton, and is mounted on a pivot so you can move it up and down.
