Cure for the Bug Invasion

tinfoilhatSeptember 20, 2012

This is Magellan, 103lbs. of rompin', stompin', death, and destruction and he's always hungry. Pretty katydids with a good Burgandy wine are just an appetizer for this big guy.

36" tall, 35" long, and 19" wide.

Made from 2 plow shares, 4 spider gears, 1 rake head, 2 brake rotors, 4 engine connecting rods, 10 push rods, 3 misc. gears and RR pikes.

My back starts hurting every time I look at him.

Every creation is even better than the one before. I just LOVE this one. 103 pounds would probably be expensive to ship. RATTS! hahaha

Wow! I'd be afraid he'd be after more than bugs!
He's a terrific guard for your cactus.
Another incredible creation.

I was missing a cat this morning and later I noticed there was a bottle of wine missing from the refrigerator in the garage. I think he's gonna be a problem if I can't train him.
