MUAR: A nursery owner has turned his interest in dinosaurs into a new tourism attraction in Johor. Don Hu Jurassic Park owner Heng Chiang Hwee, 36, said he has expanded his collection of 8 dinosaur replicas to 42 in his nursery in the past 4 years. Among his collection are a 12.8m tall Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops, Pachycephalosaurus and Stegosaurus.
“At first, I just did it for fun as my whole family, including my two children, loves these creatures and we placed them in my nursery. But after a while, people kept turning up to take photos,” he said at his nursery near the Muar second-link bridge yesterday.
Heng welcomes visitors to his nursery and allows them to take photos at no charge with the moving dinosaurs, which are specially customised from China and in Malaysia.
He planned to have a total of 100 dinosaurs in 3 years’ time and will introduce more dinosaur merchandise.
Heng, who has 16 years of experience in landscaping, said he would use up the 5.6ha of land in his nursery for various attractions especially relating to dinosaurs.
