I had my mouth gaping open the whole time watching this video!

This really made me think about how little we really know about the inner workings of an animal's mind.

This elephant is capable of creative thought, and is able to convey his thoughts onto a canvas! Simply incredible!

All I have to say is wow!

Pretty amazing if this is actual. Many of the comments in the Youtube seem to indicate that it is faked and/or trained behavior. I am not sure.

It sure as heck looks real to me....You can even see the elephant struggling to hold his massive trunk steady enough to paint a smooth line.

I doubt this is faked.

The elephant could be trained to do this, but, think about it, THAT is still an amazing feat. The fluidness of his strokes are remarkable.

been done already.


it is very cool though. Watched it a few times, amazing.

Cool until you know that the elephants are often tortured into learning how to paint!

Do not support this kind of behavior.
