Oakland Zoo Sells Animals’ Paintings

The Oakland Zoo is auctioning off paintings made by its animals on eBay in an effort to raise money for conservation partners. The masterpieces include a purple, green, and yellow-toned piece by a Madagascar hissing cockroach, and a blue, green, and yellow-hued masterpiece from Maggie the Nigerian dwarf goat. “It was fun for them because they got treats for participating,” a zoo spokesperson said.
