Don't know of a 'ready made' one, but you could contact Mark Cline and have one made. He has a flair for dinos and dragons as you can see on his web site.

And if you scroll down to SIGNS AND ENTRANCES you might get an idea that could work for you.

Styrofoam! I have seen it done. You glue enough together and then carve your heart out. Hard coat it paint it and your are done at a fraction of what it would cost to have it done. You are so creative on this forum surely your could carve out a dino!! I have faith in you. Take it one step at a time.

The services of my mother-in-law to help with the dragon head, she's not artistic nor technically knowledgable, she would be the model for the artist.
You're welcome.

Shane,
Muse is right, this is a job for styrofoam! I would get a big block from a supplier near you. Then get a carving set from hot wire foam factory. It is not that hard. Hard coat with spray stucco or regular stucco. for design reference check this out.

you really ought to make it yourself in my opinion. Something that neat and you are sure to get volunteers to help out!
If you really need specifics or help PM me.

Although I don't have anything laying around, I can build what you need - just shoot me a private message. Sorry, my website's down at this time, otherwise I can send you some pics. I did make a fully articulated T-Rex that was pretty cool, even if I do say so myself. I am accustomed to making large and unusual props. Contact me - no harm (no charge) in asking!
