Arizona’s Sea Life stingrays “painting” during feeding time for new Animal Art Gallery
TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — Arizona’s Sea Life just installed an all-new Animal Art Gallery exhibit, thanks to two amazing yet unusual painters.
The gallery, located inside Arizona Mills in Tempe, is meant to be just as much for the animals as it is for visitors — and that’s because animal care specialists prep each canvas with paint, put them in waterproof bags and let the animals go to work! The stingrays don’t paint on their own, of course, but they are given some tasty incentives. Staff offer each ray some extra special treats on the bagged canvases for them to enjoy while they’re “painting!”
If you want to check out the rays in action and all of the amazing animals at the Sea Life Aquarium, click here! Animal care specialists talk every day about a variety of topics, including the touch pool, ocean exploration, seahorses, freshwater habitats, sharks, turtles, and much more. Every Thursday at 12:30 p.m., you can watch the aquarists feed the sharks!
