This summer, a new kind of animal is taking over the Houston Zoo: LEGO animals!

The zoo's Nature Connects: Art with LEGO Bricks exhibit features more than 770,000 bricks fashioned into a dozen amazingly detailed animal sculptures, including a chameleon, polar bears, a rhinoceros and even a dodo bird, all juxtaposed with with real-life plants and trees.

The meticulously crafted exhibit, which took more than 6,500 hours of construction work to build, highlights the majesty of nature and gives visitors a glimpse into how different species interact in the wild.

According to the zoo, the best way to see the exhibit is by purchasing an all-day pass. The exhibit opens with the zoo at 9 a.m., and the last guest will be admitted at 6:30 p.m.
