    I saw this video the other day. It is amazing that this elephant knows what it is and can actually draw a likeness of himself. I wonder if he could draw a giraffe or a tortoise if one was placed in front of him?

    This makes me kind of sad. I wonder how long and it what manner it had to be trained to get that picture "just" right.

    I do hope I'm wrong; perhaps these elephants are just Picassos of the pachyderm world.

    Nah, he was just trained to paint that. Read up on it.

    And just how do we know it's a self-portrait?
    Did he caption it with his own name (maybe, he just signed as the artist).
