Elephants pose in beauty contest

  • 30 December 2012

Beauty contests are usually about glitz, glamour and plenty of posing.

But it's not just humans who are allowed to put on make up and pout for the judges.

One village in Nepal in South Asia has held a pageant with a difference.

Around 90 glammed up elephants competed for prizes in a contest to highlight the importance of looking after the animals, which are endangered in some parts of the world.
