Larger-than-life shrubbery and sun? This summer the Calgary Zoo will introduce WildScapes, a picture-perfect experience that will be the only of its kind in all of Western Canada.

From 21-foot-tall giraffes and snakes made entirely of plants, this topiary event will feature large living sculptures that have been hand-crafted to look like familiar creatures.
