Humans aren’t the only ones getting artsy with all their downtime in quarantine.

With a little help from their keepers, Houston Zoo animals are painting masterpieces of their own.

Elephants, sea lions, gorillas, bears, tigers and more are taking a brush to the canvas to raise money to help save their friends in the wild.

Their creations range from elephant kisses to vibrant brushstrokes painted by goats to a cheetah’s paw prints across a canvas.

Paintings range from $50 - $250 and include an unmatted flat canvas, a photo of the animal artist with a short biography, and cover shipping and handling costs for domestic orders.
