The painting dolphin Xiaoqiang can add a trick to his repertoire that other trained dolphins can’t. Xiaoqiang can do more than hop through hoops and perform awesome flips. This amazing dolphin can join the ranks of Thailand’s painting elephants.

The painting dolphin Xiaoqiang has learned how to create watercolor paintings with help from his trainer. You can see the lovely watercolors he has created with his brush.

I’m certain this is something I want to check out if I ever visit Qingdao, China’s Shandong Province (which is where this painting dolphin resides).
