Live At The Cleveland Zoo-Brass Monkey


OK, so they aren't really live, but they are at the Cleveland MetroParks Zoo. And there's more than just a brass monkey. You get a brass baby elephant and a brass timber wolf, so I think you come out ahead on the deal. I think they had more of these statues around the park, but these are the only ones I got pictures of. You can see they all have bright spots where the patina is rubbed off by people touching them. Maybe it's like rubbing the belly of the Buddha, you're supposed to touch the nose of the timber wolf. I double-dog dare you to do that to a real timber wolf. Good luck getting your hand back...
