Smilodon Sez...

In the typical fashion of roadside attractions, Chester and Hester's Dino-Rama wishes visitors and passerby's to "Have a Nice Day" with this cartoonish saber-toothed cat.

The name "Smilodon" is not just a fun play on words to accompany the smiling cat. It is actually the genus name for the large-toothed creatures who lived in prehistoric North and South America. Interestingly enough, the Smilodon is California's state fossil.
