Elephant Paints Amazing Self-Portrait!

These guys below are giving Picasso a run for his money, they are giving a whole new meaning to expressionism.  I am beyond impressed. My first initial thought was that this must be some kind of hoax, but after doing a lot of research– I found out that all of the paintings below have actually been done by Elephants.

Does creativity also exist in the animal kingdom? Some people say this is merely a learned skill and that their is absolutely no creativity involved.

Regardless, these paintings below show extraordinary ability!
