LOCATION: Chiang Mai, THAILAND
CAMP: Maetaman Elephant Camp
Nungning is the youngest among the elephant artists at Maetaman Elephant Camp. She began painting only three months ago and is already creating beautiful abstract works. She paints circular and arcing lines across the canvas or paper by wildly whipping her trunk around.
Kam Pu-daeng and Nungning have a very close relationship but Nungning's best friend at Maetaman has got to be the eight-year-old Boombim. The two elephants will play endlessly together in the river during bath time. The only thing that Nungning seems to not like are dogs and chickens. She will get agitated when one or the other is near. Otherwise, she is generally cheerful and good spirited even though she can still be a bit mischievious at times.
