Vintage Vicennes Zoo Elephants

Above photo 1935, and below, 1960. Does anyone have any idea where/when the idea of spikes on the ground to keep elephants back out of the moat came about, and there were some amazingly "creative" spikes used in the past? From what I have noted it seems to have been prevalent in Germany, Russia, and Poland. Or was it an era thing more so then a national thing?
