And now, enjoy an elephant playing the harmonica

When inspiration strikes, Shanthi, an elephant living at Washington, DC's National Zoo, moseys over to a harmonica and plays a jaunty tune. See if you could dance to elephant-composed music in the video above.

It's particularly interesting that Shanthi reportedly prefers music that ends with a crescendo. I wonder if she connects it to the natural trumpeting sounds that elephants make.
