Elephant Painting!?!?!

You have to see it to believe it. I'm still not sure... I think maybe the attendant is tapping or holding the elephant's ear, and the elephant is trained to respond, so the creative vision is human, and the elephant's trunk is kind of like a big computer mouse. Still amazing, but not as amazing as if the elephant were responsible for the creative vision and artistic expression.
