National Zoo to Get Paint-Loving Elephant
The National Zoo's fancy new Elephant Trail will soon have another resident. The zoo is taking in Bozie, a 37-year-old Asian elephant from the Baton Rouge Zoo.
Apparently, Bozie's been lonely since her 46-year-old elephant pal in Louisiana died last month. The National Zoo promises that she'll "prosper" with the zoo's three other Asian elephants.
But Bozie is no ordinary Asian elephant—she can paint. The Baton Rouge Zoo's director tells the Post that one of the elephant's paintings was sold to raise money for tsunami relief.
