Elephant learns to speak Korean

Koshik the elephant

Well almost.

According to the BBC, Koshik the elephant has learnt to imitate human speech and can say five words in Korean: hello, no, sit down, lie down and good.

The zoo animal places the tip of his trunk into his mouth to transform his natural low rumble into a convincing impression of a human voice. Recordings are on the BBC website.
