An incredible sight can be seen in the city of Chiang Mai, Thailand. An elephant named “Suda” used his trunk to demonstrate his artistic skills and painted a self-portrait with a brush.
Suda, a 4-year-old elephant at Maetaeng Elephant Camp in Chiang Mai, is one of many elephants trained to paint pictures for visitors. A ticket to the show only costs $15, but what an experience!
Elephants are known to recognize themselves in a mirror image, which is considered a sign of self-awareness, which has also been shown in some monkeys and dolphins.
A study conducted on captive-bred female Indian elephants showed that these animals are able to remember and discriminate between many visual pairs and some sound pairs.
A year later, a new test again showed high results, indicating developed memory. Elephants are among the few animal species that use tools.
A sighting of an Indian elephant showed its use of twigs as fly swatters.
