AFOL Lachlan is at it again – this time, he has created brick-built versions of 3 of the most well-known and much loved animals – an African Lion, a Giant Panda, and an African Elephant.
The purpose of Lachlan’s project (and why he choose to create brick-built versions of these 3 animals) is because, if you’ve noticed, these 3 animals are under threat of extinction – and he hope, with this project, he can raise the awareness of them. All of us can do our part to protect our wildlife so that these animals will never become extinct.
Looking at the images which Lachlan has provided, it looks simple to build, hence making it suitable for builders of all ages. Also, another aspect we like about these builds is that, they look very much like the animals in real life. While there are no play features with this one, it looks great on any display cabinet or even on your work desk!
Check out closeup images of the respective animals below and let us know of your thoughts:
1. African Lion:
The Lion or Panthera leo is the second largest big cat in the world. It is found in Africa and lives in grasslands, scrub, and open woodlands. Lions are carnivouros and will prey on animals such as Wildeerbeest, Zebras, and buffaloes. Lions hunt and live in groups called prides.
2. Giant Panda:
Giant Pandas or Ailuropoda melanoleuca live mainly in bamboo forests high in the mountains of western China. Pandas eat almost entirely bamboo. They are also the rarest and most threatened species of bear.
3. African Elephant:
African Elephants or Loxodonta africana are the largest living land mammals and are found in Africa. A fully grown Elephant can weigh up to 6000kg (over 13000 pounds). African Elephants are very smart and intelligent creatures. Elephants eat only vegetation making them herbivores.
Let Us Show Our Support to Raise Awareness of These 3 Endangered Animals:
We are always in support of wildlife conservation efforts – big or small. And we feel Lachlan’s project to create brick-built versions of 3 of the endangered animals is a meaningful one – it’s definitely one we support!
