Vegas Eye: Contender for the Most Unique Front Yard

In the last two weeks, I’ve bumped into four different readers who went out of their way to tell me how much they like this puzzle. So, it seems there are a bunch of LLV readers who never participate (hint, hint) in the solving of these puzzles in the public forum but are avid participants at home. In that spirit, here’s a puzzle from someone’s front yard… It’s been there a long time… Maybe even to the age of dinosaurs?

Probably not in a HOA?

1- Where is this?
2- How long have the owners of this house been collecting and displaying these yard creatures?
3- Bonus question: How many different animals are represented here and what are their scientific names?

If this proves to be too easy…. there are still lots of unfinished Vegas Eye puzzles awaiting your expertise… Click here to see the most recent ones.

  1. Steve,

    I like that name! Very funny.

    This is sorta near where you used to live…. any ideas as to where this could be?


  2. Troy,

    Nice to hear from you! Now come on… What would Las Vegas be without some of the more bizarre and creative landscaping styles found therein? This is still easier to be neighbor than say.. living next door to Lonnie Hammargren!


  3. OOOOOOOOOH, you are good.

    Just in case you want to go for the all-time record… there are still about 38 of these VE puzzles that remain unsolved or only partially solved!
