Driving through Zilker Park in Austin, TX this week I came upon a reptile of epic proportions. What I thought at first to be a giant rattlesnake sculpture is actually one of the creations of Austin Bike Zoo, makers of unique human-powered puppets. This “biocreation” is 80 feet long and is powered by six people on modified trikes.
Austin Bike Zoo has also created quite the menagerie of other animal-puppet-vehicles including bats, mantises, butterflies and birds, which you can see on their homepage http://www.austinbikezoo.org. Enjoy!
