A 57-year-old farmer in Hubei named Xiang Qinggui took bonsai to a whole new level when he invested more than 300,000 RMB to trim plants in the shapes of over 50 kinds of animals. He’s made Ligustrum elephants, giraffes, spotted deer, basically a whole menagerie. After a company in Shangdong found Xiang’s “animal world”, they offered to buy 10 of them for 30,000 RMB each, Global Times reported on its Sina Weibo.
