    The Cuusoo Zoo

    created by jimmygiggle on 2013.02.25

    Main Section
    Lego City - ZOOFARI.

    A modular zoo for the City range.

    Each enclosure is part of a versatile system which can connect in various ways to make your own City Zoo!
    The idea is for around 5 enclosures of 150-250 pieces each with a small section of path to connect each in different ways, as well as a small printed piece related to that enclosure's animal.

    The LEGO animals already produced that could be used are;
    Bear - See photo 5.
    Polar Bear
    Camel - See photo 4.
    Shark - See photo 4.
    Ostrich - See photo 3.
    Gorilla (Gorilla Suit Guy from Collectible Minifigures) - See photo 5.
    Monkey (From Pirate theme and Collectible Minifigures)
    Zebra (Painted Horse)
    Scorpion - See photo 2.
    Snake - See photo 2.
    Turtle - See photo 4.
    Spider - See photo 2.
    Tiger (Tygurah from Orient Expedition)
    Hyena (Painted Warg)
    Manta Ray
