Do your children love to play with animals and building blocks? Well, the New York's Bronx Zoo has recently taken those childhood loves and shown how they can become an art form. The zoo is now featuring a rare animal exhibit called "The Great Summer Zoofari: A LEGO Wildlife Expedition" through Sep. 30, 2011. Several of the displays - like the one seen above of a tiger on the prowl - are life-size representations of many of the real animals seen in the zoo's exhibits.

Check out more of the displays in our gallery "Zoo built in building blocks."
