Have you heard about our herd?
The Zoo’s African Elephant Crossing exhibit is home to six African elephants, a family of meerkats, naked mole rats, an African rock python and a spectacular collection of colorful birds.
And, this summer, the Zoo welcomes back a colorful new herd of elephants -- elephant sculptures that is! Eight of these whimsical works of art are located in and around the Zoo's main entrance. Three additional sculptures have found a home at Crocker Park, Legacy Village and Progressive Field.
Want to see them? Of course you do! They're so special our playful pachyderms have their very own web page.
The next time you visit the Zoo, Crocker Park, Legacy Village or Progressive Field, find your favorite and snap a picture. Don't worry -- they don't bite.
Here's what what they looked like before paint.
Many thanks to our sponsors and all of the pachyderm Picassos that turned these elephant sculptures into works of art! They include students from the Cleveland Institute of Art, Cleveland Museum of Art and a student from St. Martin de Porres just to name a few!
