It wouldn't be surprising to see an aardvark at the zoo, but the 30 meter long Feestaardvarken is definitely not something you would find even in the most exotic zoological institutions.

Created by Dutch designer Florentijn Hofman, the Feestaardvarken is an abstract version of the aardvark who also sports a celebratory party hat. The piece was created exclusively for the Burgers' Zoo in Arnhem, Holland to mark its 100th anniversary. Zoo goers can climb up onto the aardvark via its legs, making it an interactive family-friendly installation enjoyable for all ages.

If you're lucky enough to be close to the Burgers' Zoo, be sure to catch a glimpse of the Feestaardvarken before it decides to move back into its natural habitat.
