The web has been impressed before by the surprising dexterity of the elephant’s trunks, such as in the classic viral video of an elephant painting a self-portrait.
Now, a new video has gone viral of an elephant using its trunk in a surprisingly human way.
Or rather, its own trunk.
While scrubbing the elephants, the caretaker literally handed the brush off to one elephant so it could give itself a facial. Visitors were obviously impressed as they oohed and ahhed.
