(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Work is to begin this summer on a major animal display at the Oklahoma City Zoo.

Bears, river otters, bobcats, mountain lions, reptiles and prairie chickens are among the animals planned for the project called ``Oklahoma Trails.''

The more than four acre exhibit will cost $6.2-million that's being paid for with a one-eighth cent sales tax.

Officials say the exhibit will be interactive, helping visitors understand the state's native species, plants and other materials.
