Denver Zoo Lion

The Denver Zoo had many unique animals move in this week. The Colorado zoo welcomed nearly three-dozen LEGO brick sculptures of animals and insects. These life-like creations are joining the zoo’s real life animals as a part of the “Nature Connects, Art With LEGO Bricks” exhibit. The exhibit, open today through November, is sponsored by The Goddard Schools, with some LEGO creations exclusively made for the Denver Zoo.
