They add interesting and complex activities to the animals’ daily routine. Enrichment activities are fun for both animals and keepers.
All paints are non-toxic, and therefore safe for the animals. The animal care staff at Oxbow Meadows offer paints and canvas to some of our reptiles, resulting in beautiful works of art. Every original painting is very different from the next and the art is “by,” not “about,” the animals.
Proceeds from the sale of animal artwork and donations go directly back to caring for our animals. Snakes, turtles and lizards make unique artistic patterns as they slither or crawl through non-toxic paints and across the canvases.
