Perth Zoo’s elephants love to paint as part of their enrichment program.
This experience offers you the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes to meet our bull elephant, Putra Mas, and work with him on a one-of-a-kind piece of art just for you!
Kit up in the very fashion-trending splatter jumpsuit and put yourself and your canvas at the business end of a trunk full of non-toxic, vegetable-based paints. You’ll be on the other side of a barrier so you can relax and focus on watching your work of art coming to life with every puff of Putra Mas’ talented trunk.
Start thinking now about where you’re going to hang your wild masterpiece!
Elephants painting? Painting is part of the elephants’ enrichment program. Keepers teach the elephants to paint as a way of keeping their minds active.
