RE: Not dinos, but...



It is worth seeing, but according to my Thai elephant camp friends, it is
not an elephant painting impromptu, but a very skilled mahout (trainer) who
guides the elephant with gentle tension on the ear/tusk (like a robotic
arm); can't be seen in that view in the video. But still impressive in terms
of the mahout-elephant coordination.

Cheers,
John
