Zoo Builds Life-Size Animals Replicas Using Over Three Million LEGO Pieces


Most of us have played with Lego as kids. While some could create amazing structures using the pieces or bricks, others were not so creatively gifted. If you are among the latter then these life-sized panda replicas will make you say, “mind = blown.” Even if you’re pretty good with Lego yourself, chances are this installation will leave you thoroughly amazed.

San Antonio Zoo took to Facebook to share the news of this awesome installation. In the caption, they wrote that it took them over 405 hours to construct the replicas. Can you guess how many bricks they used? Turns out, they used 53,460 bricks to build!

They also shared an image of the replicas and at first glance, they look like the real creatures.

The sculpture is part of a newly launched exhibition titled ‘Wild Connections’ by acclaimed artist Sean Kenney.

Made entirely with plastic bricks, the zoo said that guests can “marvel at gravity-defying and astoundingly precise structures” of some of their favorite animals this summer.
