If you were one of the many who took advantage of the beautiful weather and piled into the Philadelphia Zoo this weekend, you may have spied an unfamiliar sight tucked among the familiar animal exhibits. Animal sculptures, crafted entire from Legos.

On Saturday, the Zoo premiered a collection of 31 different animal sculptures, all rendered in Legos, by certified Lego artist Sean Kenney. The exhibition is called Creatures of Habitat and is in place to promote awareness about vanished habitats.

Ten different animals and their habitats have been places around the Zoo. Visit all the stations to learn about why these creatures were chosen for the exhibition as well as what role the Philadelphia Zoo plays in protecting and preserving these animals and their habitats. The Lego animals will be in place until October 31, 2010, so do make sure to get over there between now and then. This is one not to be missed!
