Elepholution

Another art-as-treasure-quest: hundreds of urban elephants are now roaming through London. As you can see these elephants have evolved the chameleon-like ability to blend seamlessly into their city environment. Don't move - there's probably one behind you right now.

OMG it's full of stars!

You were right not to move. "Elephants" are vicious predators that hunt in threes. Their tentacles have a range of up to 20 metres and are tipped with poison barbs that can kill in seconds. Their favoured mode of attack is to hover motionless above their victims before diving at speeds of up to 215 miles per hour.

I love them all! What a great idea!

Great, aren't they? I've only found about 10 or 11 so far (there are several hundred out there.) I'll be looking out for them in London on Wednesday - hopefully I'll be able to sneak a few more of them into another post.
