Huge Ten Ton Mechanical Elephant (17 pics)

Posted in Random » Awesome   9 May 2011   / 5861 views

This 40’ mechanical machine is called the Sultan’s elephant and is made quite a stir as it made it way through the streets of London. It was designed by Francois Delarozière, and commissioned to celebrate the death of Jules Verne. The elephant is operated by a crew of 22 and is powered by a mixture of lever, motors and hydraulics. Its trunk even sprays water.
