A safari of life-size wild animals has gone on display in Cardiff Bay.

The 12 models, which include a 2.5m high African elephant and a 3m long crocodile, have taken Lego artists over 4,000 hours to build and are made up of about 600,000 bricks.

They have been unveiled in Tacoma Square, in the middle of Mermaid Quay, and are free to view to the public.

They will be on show until Sunday 25 February.
