A series of pictures (click to enlarge) shows an elephant using an oversized toilet. Supposedly this potty-trained elephant
, named Diew, lives in an elephant camp in Thailand. His handlers have taught him and a few other elephants to use flush toilets in order to cut down on the waste problem. Of course, it's hard to know if the elephant is really using the toilet, or if it's simply sitting down on it and then pulling a cord. The Salt Lake Tribune
reports that these images first appeared in Bangkok's The Nation
in January, and have been circulating around the internet ever since then. (via Image of the Day
