A Minnesota family built a 20 foot long, 10 foot high snow-stegosaurus.

Mike Zempel and his three sons used the six and a half inches of snow that fell there this week.

The idea to build a dinosaur came from the boys' love of reptiles.

"This old man loves iguanas, and has been talking about them the last several days. And we thought this was a good substitute instead of getting him a real iguana," said Zempel.

But his son still says, "I'm getting an iguana."

The family spent five hours making the prehistoric creature.
