An elephant paints...an elephant...
And not JUST an elephant, but an elephant holding a flower. You know, it's the inclusion of those details that sets a good elephant artist apart from those ordinary elephant artists.

Great. It's bad enough that I have to worry about my job being outsourced to an Asian company, now I have to worry about it being outsourced to an Asian elephant. Those things literally work for peanuts!
I have a hard time feeling anything but conflicted about this. On the one hand, it's really cool that an elephant can be trained to do this (and apparently this training camp uses "humane" training methods, whatever those might be), but on the other hand I have a hard time justifying the whole animals performing for tourist dollars thing. I guess it's preferable to using them to carry logs around.

Ha ha! When I first read this thread title, I completely failed to register it as the sentence "An elephant paints an elephant." Instead, I got something like:
"An elephant paints." *pauses, leans forward.* "An elephant."

I linked it to show animals can be trained to perform complex things, especially since the last vid that was linked took the situation out of context.

If I was that elephant I would paint an elephant going berzerk and trampling a bunch of spectators.
Now that would be cool.
