Animal Art Made by the Erie Zoo Wildlife

The Erie Zoo is home to hundreds of unique animals. Who knew that some of them are pretty talented when it comes to painting?! At the regular Animals are the Artists event, the Erie Zoo has many different masterpieces for sale, all made in some way with an animal’s touch. Bookmarks, canvases, framed and matted portraits, jewelry, key chains, magnets, mugs, wine charms and more are available. Prices are as low as $5 and go up to $75. Animal art is also for sale at the Erie Zoo’s website located here:

Some of the animals seem like they could be the next Picasso (Paw-casso?)! Animal-made creations include the following animal artists: lion, giraffe, orangutan, penguin, rhino, sand cat, serval, spider monkey, tiger, red panda, and warthog. The farm animals that reside at the Erie Zoo are definitely not forgotten as there are also artworks made by chickens, ferrets, and sheep, just to name a few. What are you stopping by to grab? You surely can’t go wrong with a piece made by an African painted dog – it says it right there in the name.

If you’re shopping for a unique gift for an animal lover or if you’re looking for something great for yourself, you won’t be disappointed with all the Erie Zoo has to offer. Best of all, the sales from this fundraiser supports the Erie Zoo and their animals while it’s closed during the winter.

How about a few quick animal jokes?

  • I went to the zoo and saw a slice of toast in a cage.
    A sign read: “Bread in captivity.”
    (At yeast they haven’t risen up against the zookeepers.)
  • Did you know that you only need two letters to spell Panda?
    You just need P and A.
  • When a giraffe eats a small snack, a little goes a long way.​​​
