I'm semi-speechless.

Outside of the astonishment of it actually happening, it raises questions that I'm a little unprepared to answer.

I'll reserve judgement until I find out whether or not elephant meat is delicous.

That is a legitimate "warm-fuzzy". But tell us more about what exactly has changed in your life and how it will be forever. Seriously........ unless you're not.

If you search youtube for elephant painting, there are lots of videos. The elephant at the zoo near us paints flowers, though his paintings aren't quite at this level. Regardless, it's extremely impressive.

It was a hyperbole.

i've seen this with my very own eyes in Pai, Thailand and it is truly amazing but do keep an eye out, not all trainers are nice to their elephants.

If you guys liked the video, check out this story:

This story will truly amaze you....

Sometimes these 'heartwarming' stories are a bit too soppy for me but this one is truly interesting...


In 1986, Peter Davies was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University.

On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very carefully.

He got down on one knee, inspected the elephant's foot and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Peter worked the wood out with his hunting knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Peter stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away. Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.

Twenty years later, Peter was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenaged son. As th ey approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Peter and his son Cameron were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Peter, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.

Remembering the encounter in 1986, Peter couldn't help wondering if this was the same elephant. Peter summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.



Probably wasn't the same elephant.

Yesterday, today and tomorrow
I got a little uncomfortable when he started drawing that 4th leg.


Anyway, who cares? Those are stupid animals but we have sweet NSXs!!

Also, I call BS on the whole charade. How many jokers did you see running around in the background with blank easels?? This was some animal parks little business venture. Very cute. I can train my dog to fetch, roll over, beg, speak, shake hands, and debate George Bush too.


This video is going to change my life forever too. Anyone know of a smart left handed elephant for sale??

After seeing the vid I'd hang that in my house. Not the living room ... guest bedroom, maybe.
And one more thing: If anyone posts videos of cows, chickens, and catfishes doing that I'm gonna starve.:redface:
