It’s difficult to overstate the gravitas a video like this brings. It raises so many questions begging in depth studies to better understand animal consciousness, personality, and their perception of the world. The concept of “animal rights” suddenly sounds far less loony or radical and instead becomes glaringly obvious and even necessary. It is difficult to not be moved by this.
I was as amazed as many out there and I wondered if this was real or a hoax. Here I give you another video from a BBC news story that seems to confirm that the paintings are in fact done by an elephant.
