Rhinos

Handlers at the Denver Zoo were looking for a way to enrich the environment of their resident rhinoceros, Mishindi, when they taught her to paint. Now they can't keep her away from a canvas. Some of her art has sold at auction for hundreds of dollars, money which has been used to improve her habitat at the zoo.
