PACHYDERM painter Karishma put the finishing touches to her latest masterpieces at Whipsnade Zoo yesterday, ready to celebrate Elephant Appreciation Day this Saturday and Sunday.

The 13-year-old female Asian elephant loves nothing more than using her trunk to wield a brush and create colourful designs on canvas.

Elephant keeper Elizabeth Becker said: “Karishma really enjoys painting, and it demonstrates just how dexterous elephant’s trunks really are.”

Karishma’s work will be on display at the zoo all weekend to raise money for elephant conservation projects.
