It only took a few days for the theme park Kyoryu (Dinosaur) Park Kisarazu to find a new home for its 65 full-size dinosaur models ahead of its Feb. 11 closure.

When the media reported Jan. 31 that the plastic models were to go on sale for a discount averaging 90 percent, the phone didn’t stop ringing as people tried to reserve them, according to officials at the park in Kisarazu, Chiba Prefecture. The total cost of making them came to some 200 million yen, they said, without disclosing how much the models sold for.
