'Creatures of Habitat: A Gazillion-Piece Animal Adventure' is an exhibit at the Philadelphia zoo that will spark kids' interest in endangered animals.

The intricate and detailed statues are created by none other than Sean Kenney -- a LEGO artist that, although playing with toys for a living, really knows how to rock his medium. When asked about how much time the exhibit took to complete, Kenney claimed that "the 34 animals he created for the zoo took him over one year to complete--the largest project he's undertaken." Wow. It seems that even though the animals featured are in short supply, LEGO pieces are certainly not.
