Watch video of the process as Fort Wayne Children's Zoo animals paint

Friday, March 21, 2014 - 7:33 am

Fort Wayne Children's Zoo staff use painting as one of many enrichment activities to help stimulate animals mentally and physically while they are at the zoo.

Not all animals are able to paint, however. Many also use their feet, walking across a piece of art paper or canvas board, rather than use their hands or paws.

The finished art works normally are auctioned at the annual Zoobilee fundraising dinner and auction, or given to people as gifts.
