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.
While visiting the Fort Worth Zoo, YouTuber Svaught32 was shocked by an elephant that took its grooming into its own hands.
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.
