These dinosaur planters spotlight a characteristic of the behemoth reptiles little-known to anyone but the world's leading paleontologists: dinos loooove toting around small succulents and cacti. (And I thought it was just tiny Italian men with their own video games.) Two of the three pictured non-lizards from the Cretaceous Period ship with their own flora, which buyers plant themselves, and the third ($15 instead of $20) arrives solo, but prepped to receive any 2" to 4" succulent or cactus. All planters come with drilled drainage holes, in a choice of about 10 hand-mixed colors.

The featured turquoise Styracosaurus--called Betty by its artists, but probably desperate for a moniker and gender shake-up--includes a 2.5" Echeveria Lola Succulent, plus planting and watering instructions. It measures 10" long x 5" tall. Max--now that's more like it--the marine blue Triceratops houses a 2.5" Haworthia Succulent, and measures 10" long x 4.5" tall. Zoe the avocado Apatosaurus...seriously, am I the only one who's never heard of an Apatosaurus? Or a Styracosaurus, for that matter? I swear, we learned about the existence of maybe 6 dinosaurs when I was in elementary school, and now every time I turn around someone's tossing out the name of a brand new 8-syllable tongue-tormenter from 100 million years ago. Anyway, the Apatosaurus comes with no plant, and is 12" long x 6" tall.
