SAUGUS, Mass. (CBS) -

If you’ve ever vacationed along Route 1 then you’ve probably seen a giant, orange dinosaur.

The T-Rex has been an icon for residents of Saugus, Massachusetts since the early 60s, but the land where it sits has recently been sold to a new development.

It has many people worried about what might become of the T-Rex but the developer who bought the land said he plans to keep the giant statue simply for the draw it has to the area.

“It might stay where it is because it’s such a landmark.  When I tell people I bought this land in Saugus they say, where is it, and I say, you know where the orange dinosaur is?  They know where it is,” says Michael Barsamian, a developer.
