Elephant Plays Piano

Yes, a real elephant, and a real piano.

And not as result of circus training or the like.

While Peter (that’s the elephant’s name) certainly isn’t classically trained, it seems also obvious to me that he in fact intends to join the pianist in producing sounds. Just compare his actions to those of the second elephant, arriving later, who isn’t into playing at all and just looks around.

Wow.

But, after all, we already know that birds mimick city noises, several animals make use of tools, cats understand the cause/effect relation of laserpointer and that little red point they like to chase after – so it shouldn’t be so much of a surprise.

Waiting for an animal music school, though…
