Colorful pawprints stepped across the canvas in distinct patterns, while the slinking trail of a snake was highlighted with red and green. Animals in Potter Park Zoo have been painting for years, and for the first time these paintings are displayed for the public to admire and purchase until Nov. 20 at the Artisan’s Circle in Williamston. Along with the artwork, other zoo residents visited the store with the assistance of a few docents. The middle room in the store hosted a variety of animals; including a milk snake, southern three-banded armadillo, a ferret and a tenrec.
