Amazing Elephant Artist

This elephant was rescued from abusive treatment in Burma and is now recovering and is painting a self-portrait!!! I was stunned to see the dexterity of this huge mammal. If cows could do this, would we still eat them?

The video was posted by Exotic World Gifts who supports, "Starving Elephant Artisans" by selling their paintings so they can continue to have a new life in Thailand.

Whatever, I can paint better. But it kind of makes you wonder. Were prehistoric drawings made by cave men or cave elephants? I guess we'll never know.

Brilliant! I'll mention the idea to my anthropologist friends, I'm certain it will keep them busy for hours.
