Penguins are really quite pleasant painters at Woodland Park Zooon November 13, 2012 @ 12:18 pm (Updated: 12:38 pm - 11/13/12 )
A pair of Humboldt penguins at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle will use their delicate, webbed feet to create a living room conversation piece for a few art connoisseurs.
Of course, while it's less common to see the artwork of two penguins, Chai the 33-year-old elephant has been busy painting too. The zoo says she is known for 'her kaleidoscope paintings that showcase delicate brush strokes and vibrant colors.'
The paintings will be auctioned off during the annual Holiday Silent Auction at Woodland Park Zoo, Friday, Nov. 16.
