The baby T.rex is one of five new LEGO® brick dinosaur species which are being installed ahead of their unveiling to the public at the Hampshire-based zoo this week (Thursday 18 July). Other new LEGO brick models include a towering four-metre tall Plesiosaur, a super spikey 1,500kg Stegosaurus, a colourful Mochlodon and five bird-like Archaeopteryx.<br />
 <br />
Marwell Zoo is the first attraction in the world to host BRICKOSAURS, a collection of 50 life-like LEGO brick dinosaurs on display around its beautiful 140-acre park.  The one-off event is running until 1 September 2019.<br />
 <br />
Highlights include the largest touring LEGO brick dinosaur model ever made – a whopping eight-metre T. rex.  It took an estimated 969 days and more than two million bricks to complete the collection of dinosaur sculptures.<br />
