On the way back to Denver we swung by the Swetsville Zoo.
The Swetsville Zoo is filled with over 160 sculptures made by Bill Swets.
Bill Swets makes his sculptures out of various different types of metal he finds such as: car, truck and farm equipment parts.
With some of the photos posted below I have included the sculpture's "Nickname" and "Scientific Name"...
