Noah’s Ark Recreated – Filled With Plastic Animals

Noah's Ark - Funny Dog BlogNoah’s Ark lives!

To every animal the story of Noah’s Ark holds a certain charm to it. What other ‘tail’ do you know that proactively hooks up animals with each other?

When I hear the story, I put myself in the position of the male dog asked to be a passenger on Noah’s Love Boat. After being served a bowl of water by Isaac (he’s one of the human servants on board), I head back to my cabin. There, a foxy little Wheaton Terrier  awaits my arrival. Our job is simple. To procreate.

I move in to playfully nip at her collar when  . . .  *BAM*, I realize I’m a neutered male.

I don’t even have neuticals for show.

Oh well, who gets to live out their dreams these days, anyway? Certainly no pup I know. But there is a human who is, and he could be Noah’s descendant. Check out his story.

Johan, 52, has been building the ark for three years, after dreaming that a part of Holland was flooded.

The Dutchman decided to build a replica according to ancient measurements laid out in the Bible, with the Book of Genesis describing the ark as 300 cubits long, 30 cubits high and 50 cubits wide.

With a cubit roughly the distance between the elbow and the fingertips, this translates to 150 metres long, four storeys high and 25 metres wide.

Life-sized plastic replicas of various animals are scattered on board the ship, with a total of 1,600 different species on board.

The ark will also boast sleeping quarters, a theatre and stage, a restaurant and conference facilities, with Huibers opening his ‘Bible museum’ by the end of the year.

That’s one sweet ride.

    Probably a good thing they’re plastic and not real! Could get messy!

Got something to say?
