If you want a truly, one-of-a-kind work of art, then look no further than the Lake Superior Zoo in Duluth.

As they stated in a recent Facebook post, "Are you really an art connoisseur if you don't own a painting by a lion? Or a chicken?". I think animal lovers everywhere would say, "Absolutely not!"

I didn't know they did this, but I think it's very cool and something that would be fun to own. The Lake Superior Zoo has animals create paintings and each one turns out very unique and amazing.

The paintings are created by a wide variety of animals including:

  • African Lions
  • Cougars
  • Brown Bear
  • African Pygmy Hedgehogs
  • Black Crested Mangabeys
  • Brush-Tail Bettongs
  • Cape Porcupines
  • Snakes
  • Chickens
  • Ducks
  • Kune Kune Pigs
  • Nigerian Pygmy Goats
  • Ring-tailed Lemurs

There are currently paintings in stock that were created by the animals above that are available to purchase. You also have the fun option of creating a custom order with the animal of your choice.

The video below shows how the painting process begins with their African lions.

If you were to choose to have a custom painting created, you'd get to pick a background color, a paint color, the size of the painting, and which animal you'd like to create your one-of-a-kind work of art.

Those are tough choices, but based on the paintings created so far by all the animals, there really are no bad choices.

You can click on the button above to see the works of art that are currently for sale, with prices ranging from $50 to $250, and to order a custom work of art. The money generated from the paintings helps support the animals that call the Lake Superior Zoo home.
