Giant eagle bike-thing from Austin’s Bike Zoo

That giant roaming eagle you saw last week outside the University Union flew in from Austin to help UNT celebrate University Day.

The mechanical beast with moving head, neck, beak, tongue, legs and talons was the creation of an Austin group, Bike Zoo, which specializes in hand-built animal creations used in events around the country.

The group’s newest bike, the bald eagle, was not originally made for UNT, but Bike Zoo founder Jeremy Rosen saw a partnership opportunity in the university’s 125th anniversary celebrations.
