    London - It's not every day that you see a triceratops standing alone in the middle of a dark street. 

    Drivers were forced to maneuver around the replica dinosaur blocking a road on the Isle of Wight Friday night.

    Chris Hollingshead was one of many amused witnesses that posted a photo to Facebook.

    "That priceless moment when you're driving home from work at 3am and the road is blocked by a 20ft Triceratops," Hollingshead wrote.

    The dinosaur, nicknamed Godshilla, belongs to Martin Simpson from Island Gems, who told Isle of Wight County Press he is planning to renovate it and put a fence around it.

    "It must have taken five hefty lads to move it," Simpson told the Isle of Wight County Press"It's great people are talking about it, but I wouldn't want to encourage anybody to cause a hazard for traffic."

     

     

    The prank could have been planned at the nearby bar.

    "It must be the same people who tied balloons round its neck and put tinsel over it for Christmas," Lisa Choi, owner of The Taverners, told Isle of Wight County Press. "They've gone one step further this time."
