This next video is a 2013 tour of the Conservatory at Bellagio Las Vegas during February of 2013.  The Year of the Snake is presented is a classy way, as always.


YouTube has many videos presenting the cobra of 2013.  Here’s another one.  Featured is the animatronic tree set in for the 4th year since Animal Makers built it.  There is a new tree “skin” that is larger than the first skin.  All we did was animate the face.  This one reason the talking tree gets so much publicity as it does.

Back to the snake of Chinese New Year, we see the visitor’s camera carefully recording the look of this stunning display.

Here’s a full scale adult female elephant as it gets a skin coating applied. It was designed and created to be installed in San Antonio, Texas at a megachurch. More than 28,000 people were in line on Saturday, March 16, to tour The Ark”, wrote “The Christian Post” on March 22, 2013.
