Even the way he's standing when he vocalizes, it's like he's saying "Look at me."

An elephant at a South Korean zoo has attracted the attention of an international research team amid reports that the animal can talk. According to zoo officials, 20-year old "Kosik" can vocalize at least seven words in Korean and the scientists are eager to learn how.
Evolution in action? You be the judge!
Since I can't understand Korean I can't even comment on how accurate the elephant can 'talk', or if it just mimics the sounds it most often hears. Even if I could speak Korean I wouldn't be able to ascertain that.

Im glad he's the only living elephant that can talk, I mean, Id be freaked if dead elephants could talk.
And the bit about imitating other elephants?? rofl.
Seriously though, keeping intelligent animals captive, is it a sign of desperation or desire that they learn how to sound like their captors?
