TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson Wildlife Center is full of every kind of animal you can imagine.

Big, small, hairy, scaly, dangerous and harmless.

Now, they have a gaze of resident artists.

The TWC handed out paint and brushes to nine young raccoons as part of an enrichment project.

Video of the petite painting picassoes can be seen below.

The TWC said they used non-toxic paint and made sure the raccoons were moved to a separate enclosure so the masterpieces could be removed and the animals could avoid human contact.
