Painting With Alligators
The baby alligators of Florida's Gatorland may be short, sharp and snappy, but their art is anything but. With their feet and front covered in non toxic paint, the year old baby gators have proved unlikely teaching assistants for the 110 acre parks keepers. Placed on top of a white sheet, the ten-inch long alligators are encouraged to slip and slide across the canvas, painting unique and surreal art works in the process. With every gator's unique scales and foot prints etched onto each artwork, the parks younger visitors are encouraged to understand and appreciate these ancient creatures. Spending 15 minutes on each artwork, the baby gator artists are helping Gatorland celebrate 60 years open to the public as a park.
