The Capron Park Zoo shared this photo of one of their De Brazza's Monkeys painting with a brush.

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WLNE) — Officials at the Capron Park Zoo said two of their monkeys learned how to paint with brushes this weekend.

The zoo said all it took was some positive reinforcement training before De Brazza’s monkeys Nils and Daisy were making art with paintbrushes.

All paintings by Nils and Daisy will be available for auction through the zoo’s Animal Art Auction that runs through the end of next week.
