Alligator Watermelon Carving

Seems there are a few Alligator Watermelon Carvings showing up on the web suddenly, but Clive's was the first and I still think the best (though there are some good ones, I must admit).  This was featured last year in Ripley's Eye-Popping Oddities book.  Make sure you share this one, it deserves to go viral! Best Watermelon Carving - ever! Alligator Watermelon Watermarked  

African Lion Pumpkin Carving by Clive Cooper

This African Lion Pumpkin Carving might just be Clive's best sculpture to date.  Hard to see the scale here, but this must be at least an 80lb atlantic giant pumpkin he's used.   Unfortunately, this lion met his demise. Nope, not in the Arena, but rather deteriorated overnight in our kitchen!  It's uber cool!   African Lion Pumpkin Carving by Clive Cooper

Panda Pumpkin Carving by Clive Cooper

Clive creates his 2nd Pumpkin Carving of a Panda.  Little bigger than the first Panda Pumpkin, but every bit as cute! Panda Pumpkin Carving
