"Wildlife" one of the world's largest puzzles by Adrian Chesterman

“Wildlife” was designed and illustrated by Adrian Chesterman and published by Educa Borras in Barcelona, Spain. The puzzle took 8 months to assemble and was done by Joseph Treschel. He is currently working on “Around the World”, the world’s largest puzzle at 42,000 pieces which will be donated to the International Wildlife Museum when he’s finished later this year.

“Wildlife” is 33,600 pieces and measures 19 feet long by 6.5 feet tall. It features dozens of species from rainforests and savannahs.

The exhibit features mounts of some animals found in the puzzle including a lion, jaguar, hippopotamus, butterflies and more. There are also puzzles for children to work on in the exhibit area.
