Jonah was born in 1997 and is a male California sea lion. He came to us when he was just a year old, after being found stranded on a beach, eating rocks and sand to try to fill his empty stomach, and joined us shortly thereafter. He is a very playful, intelligent sea lion who loves learning new behaviors and then adding his own creative flair. His first painting was created in October 2009, and sold for more than $100! The paintings below are those which are currently available for sale. They are priced individually, dependent on a number of variables such as the number of colors, canvas size, and visual appeal. The prices for his paintings start at only $30. Each painting is also numbered, and comes with a photograph of him painting it as a certificate of authenticity. To learn more about Jonah as an individual, see Jonah on our Animal Alumni Page. To see some of Jonah's past works of art (not available for sale) for inspiration, see his "Past Paintings". Jonah now lives at the Houston Zoo since 2013 where he is a proud father.
