TULSA, Oklahoma -- A penguin Picasso? A meerkat Monet?

Believe it or not, the Tulsa Zoo is home to some pretty artsy animals, and their masterpieces are on display now at Wild Fork Restaurant in Utica Square.

This is the second collection of "Art: Untamed," a fundraiser for the Tulsa Zoo. There are a lot of pieces from which to choose, but the zoo says these works of art are more than just pretty pictures.

"It's actually enrichment, or fun things that animals like to do," said Angela Evans, with the Tulsa Zoo. "It keeps them occupied and breaks them out of their regular routine."

The art is on display and for sale through March 13th.
