    Looking for elephants.

    While riding through the city the other day I came across an elephant all painted up and decided to take a picture of my bike next to it.. I was then told that there are 50 of them scattered around the city and they are to celebrate 150 yrs of the Melbourne Zoo.

    I started looking for more but only had about an hour spare so I only found 12 out of the 50.. Here's my pics.

    Are they trying to shock the alcoholics in Melbourne into a cure, or are they hoping they'll flee screaming into NSW?

    Cool idea. Apparently all elephants has the same "trunk up" posture..

    That sounds like a lot of fun. Would make for a great fat bike scavenger hunt, with beer as a prize of course.

    Haha this is awesome. Here in Cincinnati, there are colored pig statues (very similar). You have kinda inspired me to do the same. Good stuff
