Silly frog watermelon carving by artist Clive Cooper seen in Vancouver, Canada. Most of us cut up a juicy watermelon without a second thought. But for sculptor Clive Cooper it takes hours of painstaking work to cut up his watermelons. And he has managed to produce amazing creations of animals, such as an alligator head, a shark and even a bear and a dinosaur too. He gets his ideas from comics and sci-fi movies. He sometimes uses more than one watermelon in a single creation, the watermelon alligator head has also earned him more than 1.3 million ‘likes’ on Facebook.
