A local zoo is selling artwork by animals to raise money for educational projects, giving its fans a sneak peek at the artists in action.

The Buttonwood Park Zoo in New Bedford posted a video on its Facebook page, showing a seal using a paintbrush and working in exchange for fish.

In the video, the seal takes a few swipes at the canvas with the brush in its mouth, then puts the brush down to await a reward.

Buttonwood Park Zoo says proceeds from the art sales go to help educational and conservation programs.
