- An elephant has left social media users dazzled as it displayed an act usually common to humans
- The mammal, in a viral clip, made an amazing artwork of itself using its trunk
- Many remarked that the animal artist sure has the brains of a human
An elephant has been celebrated, hailed and talked about after its uncommon display of creative talent.
The mammal, in a clip shared on Facebook by Goin' Through, stood before a drawing board as it was handed a painting brush by an unidentified man.
In a masterly fashion, as if it were a human artist, the elephant started with a line.
What seemed like a disorganised connection of lines turned out to be the artwork of an elephant.
The animal artist painted without being aided. It used its trunk to hold the brush in the 13-minutes display.
The video as of time of making this report had received over 750k likes and thousands of views as Facebook users couldn't believe their eyes.
Many were of the opinion that the animal thought like a human, others described the demonstration as amazing.
Guy Inkster said:
"Elephants are non human people. They exhibit skills that surpass humans and character that must be protected for as long as humans exhist. To hunt and kill these great masterpieces is a great crime!
"Many creatures are this way. Protect first and assure their happiness! It’s our responsibility if we call ourselves humanity! Suda... the elephant ... exhibits a bow on completion and shows compassion to present her drawing as a statement of love to those who will listen."

"Wow i have never seen such a beautiful art work done by an Animal. this is so amazing."
Michael De Stoop remarked:
"Surely, the elephant must be tracing at least a faint sketch? Even a human child could not product such art."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported of a video that had gone viral in which a dog responded to series of directives its owner gave in Yoruba language.
The owner in the clip first commanded the rottweiler to sit, and it did sit. He followed it up with a directive for the dog to be up standing, to which it obliged.
Other commands he gave the domestic animal include to speak up and step back were heeded to by the domestic animal.
Nigerians found the display amazing with some wondering if it had been a human in its past life. One social media user enquired if the dog will be able to pick the Igbo language.
