Art is all about perspective, and the McNay Art Museum's most recent critics provided a new angle of viewing the museum's masterpieces.


Last Friday, animal ambassadors ventured out of the San Antonio Zoo to expand their horizons at the McNay, which the museum documented in a post on social media.

A python slithered through the "Siempre Selena" exhibition, tortoises critiqued "Fashion Nirvana" (who needs clothes when you already have a shell?) and an anteater and porcupine discovered the art galleries.

The only thing we're left wondering is when the lions will be allowed admission.
