AMAZIAN OF THE WEEK! Kosik, The Talking Elephant

October 18th, 2010 | 2 comments | Posted by Diana

Name: Kosik

Hails from: Gyeonggi-do Province, South Korea

Occupation: Elephant at Everland Theme Park

Known for: His ability to “speak” human words (it is unclear whether or not he can fly when holding a feather). CBS recently reported that Kosik, a captive elephant at Everland Theme Park, has developed the ability to speak seven words in Korean (which is three more words than I can say, if you don’t count food). He is the only known living elephant to do so, and even though it’s unlikely he can understand what he’s saying, scientists are dazzled by his ever-improving pronunciasian.

Watch:



We can’t wait to hear him say DISGRASIAN. Any day now…

    It does kind of sound like “good” in korean I suppose. I wonder why they didn’t show all 7. I would love to hear an elephant pronounce “annyeong haseyo” correctly. I wonder if he can say “na-nun chae-shik ju-iuo ja”? That would be impressive.
