Becka's Moment of Zen

Unfortunately, this You Tube video has its embed capabilities disabled, so I can only give you a link to follow instead of showcasing the video here on my blog. But this is worth following and watching to the end. The video is 8 1/2 minutes long, but you'll be amazed the entire way through. It will change everything you *think* you know about animals that can paint.

So I found out via Snopes ( that this elephant doesn't paint the self-portrait on a whim, like a human artist would. They are trained to do so.

HOWEVER, it *still* amazes me that this elephant can be so precise with it's brush strokes to GO BACK OVER the lighter lines with darker paint because it "wasn't dark enough". Amazing.

Whether or not they train these animals to paint certain pictures doesn't detract from the fact that a fricken' elephant painted a self portrait. From memory.

Put a ".asp" at the end of the above Snopes linky for it to work, damn Blogger cut it off. Hmpf!

Oh, and it's "elephantpainting.asp" at the end, not "elephantpaint".

I know, I know, Becka's being a PITA again...
