New York City, NY (CBS News) -- 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 LEGO exhibit through Sep. 30, 2011. Several of the displays - like this one of a tiger on the prowl - are life-size representations of many of the real animals seen in the zoo's exhibits. 

The flamingos are also part of "The Great Summer Zoofari: A LEGO Wildlife Expedition" exhibit at the Bronx Zoo. Each display includes information on the featured animal and how the Wildlife Conservation Society is working to save it in the wild.

The giraffe sculpture - and several of the other displays - may make you do a double-take as you walk through the zoo. 

Other animals featured in the exhibit include gorillas, penguins, and other exotic wildlife, created by LEGO's team of builders.
