First Ever Beauty Pageant For Elephants in Nepal

beauty contest, or beauty pageant, is a competition based mainly on the physical beauty of its contestants, although such contests often incorporate personality, talent, and answers to judges’ questions as judged criteria.

The phrase almost invariably refers only to contests for women; similar events for men are called by other names and are more likely to be “body building” contests.

But here we have something new for you, the first ever beauty contest for elephants in Nepas was organised recently and it was expectional.
