At 13 feet long and over 9 feet tall, Wooly Bully weighs nearly 1300 pounds
(over 600 pounds of tie wire for his hair).
He took nearly 6 months to build.
I named him Wooly Bully
because the whole time I was building
him, that song "Wooly Bully" kept going through my head!
The extinct Elephant Bird of Madagascar inspired "Big Bird." At 9.5' tall and 6.5' long, it represents the largest land bird ever known.
