Rhinoceros [gone]
Islamorada, FL
Hippo
Hutto, TX
This Rhinoceros statue was installed on top of the Safari Lounge sign. It was missing after Hurricane Irma in 2017. I don't know if it was saved.

This Hippo statue is 10 feet tall and made of concrete. It was created for a miniature golf course but it wound up here. The statue was produced by Ben Robinson of the Plycrete Mold Co. The original sculpture from which the mold was made was created by Elmer Johnson. It was installed in 1992 and is Hutto's main tourist attraction. A photo-op staircase has been built next to the statue. Many smaller hippo statues have also been decorated and installed around town. Hutto's fondness for hippos can be traced back to around 1915 when a hippo escaped from a circus train in town. For more, see this website. [map]

Hutto, TX
This Hippo statue is installed in front of Hutto High School. He is the schoo's mascot. I don't know when it was installed or who created it. For more, see this website. [map]

Hippo
Edmond, OK
Hippo, Bear & Dinosaur
Sandusky, OH
This Hippo statue appears to be holding a camera. The trap door in back suggests that this statue might have been mechanical in some way. It is located in front of Glass Solutions. Does anyone know the history of this statue? [map]

The Hippo, Bear & Dinosaur statues were installed in front of the Best Budget Inn when these photos were taken in 2012. The Dinosaur came from a Sinclair gas station. The hippo and bear were created by Ben Robinson (see description of the hippo in the row above). Robinson sold many statues to mini golf courses and these figures most likely came from one. In 2014, the motel became the Magnuson Hotel Sandusky. The three statues were still there in 2015. [map]

This giant Ram statue was built for Pharaoh's Theme and Water Park which operated from 1996-2006. In 2011, the park reopened as the Splash Kingdom Waterpark. This statue and several others just like it appear to be gone now.

The Bighorn Ram in Afton is located at Castle Rock Dodge Chrysler & Jeep. The sculpture was created by Jonathan the Bear Man. For more, see this website. [map]

Aluminum Critters & More opened in 2006. They sell statues of Rocky Mountain wildlife, jungle animals, reptiles and farm animals. For more, see this website. [map]

Bighorn Ram
Cascade, ID
Grizzly Bear with Salmon
Cascade, ID
These Bighorn Ram and Grizzly Bear with Salmon sculptures are made from barbed wire. They were made by Big John, a local artist. The Bighorn Ram is installed in front of a Dodge dealership. The Bear is located elsewhere in town. Big John's barbed wire sculptures of an Indian and a buffalo were also installed in town. However, I did not notice those statues when these 2014 photos were taken. [map]
