Using the same positive reinforcement training used to calmly guide animals into holding crates for vet check-ups, our keepers guide the red pandas to step through animal-safe paint and transfer their pawprints onto canvas. The result is a one-of-a-kind animal masterpiece!

Pawprint paintings are available in the gift shop in a variety of colors and sizes, and all proceeds go directly into the zoo’s Conservation Fund to support wildlife and habitat conservation projects.

All of these items – and more! – are available for purchase at the zoo gift shop. Learn more about our gift shop!
