    Please read the for more information about the content of this
    video.Light-heated musical mayhem when Peter the elephant joins in a
    12 bar blues on piano with his trunk -- entirely of his own
    accord.Ive noticed elephants, such as Peter have moods at different
    times of day. Usually in the cooler early evening before nightfall
    (In Thailand) they are in a more relaxed and potentially playful
    mood.Peter the elephant lives at http//www.elephantstay.com

    /5693947552571843649 There are other similar albums on this Goggle+
    account.With reference to recent comments (19/11/2013) * The guy in
    the background is Pat, Peters mahout. He is Thai. A mahout is a
    person that devotes his or her life to looking after an elephant,
    usually in Asia. This is a dangerous job.* Pat is responsible for
    Peters well-being, day and night, all year round. Pats daily duties
    include keeping Peter safe from other bull elephants as well as
    looking after visitors to Peters home at the Royal Elephant Kraal in
    Ayutthaya, Thailand. * Pat and Peter have a special bond.* Pat is
    not reading a magazine in this video, he is filming with his
    tablet.* Pat is not prodding Peter, he is just reminding him not to
    get too carried away and smash the piano keys with his heavy trunk
    as he has, unintentionally, on previous occasions. * The chain
    around Peters neck is flimsy. It is there so Pat can walk at Peters
    side and guide him occasionally around vehicles or other potentially
    harmful bull elephants on the way to bath and drink in the river,
    for instance. Those with experience working with elephants in
    Thailand know this flimsy chain is no restraint to an elephant
    whatsoever. It is not there to cause Peter any harm, just the
    reverse.* Peter has NOT been trained to play piano. This video is
    Peters spontaneous reaction to a piano during a brief encounter one
    evening between Peter and Paul Barton, a visiting pianist to the
    elephant Kraal where Peter lives.* This video is one of a series in
    Music for Elephants. There are 23 videos with piano and elephants in
    this playlist
    http//www.youtube.com/playlist?listPL07228141C088A986 * Piano keys
    are no longer made of ivory. The piano in this video has plastic
    keys. All piano keys are made from synthetic polymers and plastics.
    The use of ivory for piano keys decreased dramatically after World
    War II and thankfully stopped altogether in 1989 with the CITIES
    worldwide ban on ivory trade.
