In Thailand, You Can Get Massages From Enormous Asian Elephants


Next time you need a massage, consider booking a flight to Chang Mai, Thailand.

There you'll find a peculiar sight: hoards of tourists lying down on the ground, towels draped over their midsections, waiting patiently for a 4,000 pound animal to come give them a massage.

Yes, that's right, these are elephant masseurs. And judging from the video above, uploaded by Caters TV, they're pretty talented at their work.

Asian elephants can live to be 60 years old, weigh up to 5.5 tonnes (or over 10,000 pounds), and have been domesticated and trained for thousands of years.
