LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The Louisville Zoo is now offering visitors a chance to purchase one-of-a-kind artwork made by some of its animals.

Zoo spokeswoman Kara Bussabarger says a new store at the zoo features works by an elephant, a gorilla and an orangutan.

Prices for the one-of-a-kind animal artwork range from $25 for a 5-inch-by-7-inch painted canvas to $250 for a 20-inch-by-30-inch painted canvas.

Proceeds of animal art purchases benefit the zoo's animal enrichment programs and conservation efforts.
