Bike Zoo

I'm pretty curious to see this thing in action. Several bicycles have been modified to look like animals, becoming movable pieces of art. There are bats, monarch butterflies, and rattlesnake bikes, the latter an impressive 80 feet long. Right now, the bicycles/works of art are raising awareness of the monarch butterfly migration in West Texas, perhaps one of the few places on Earth you can ride an 80 foot bicycle without fearing for your life. The article doesn't say what the inspiration for modifying the bicycles was, but I'm guessing weed was involved. Here is the bat bicycle:

Pretty cool. And come to think of it, a little creepy looking.
