Elephants need mental stimulation too. An elephant’s brain develops much like a human brain. They’re social animals who learn how to be elephants from their parents. Those elephants who grow up in captivity lean many behaviors from their human “parents.” Ever looking for ways to mentally occupy their young charges, humans have introduced elephants to art and the elephants are not only interested, they’re very good at it.

A recent news clip from FoxToledo highlighted one elephant’s efforts reminded me that this was happening and sent me looking for more information and links.
