balancing elephant

Newer Older

One of my most visited photos - a young balancing elephant that tries to get some food from out of the hand of a child. Because of some negative critics I read...there was a keeper present behind the elephant at all times. This kind of closeness between the animals and the public is normal in this zoo.

oliveshadow, Cyril-Hugues, CharlesSF, and 198 other people added this photo to their favorites.

    Oh My Lord! I hope the elephant doesn't lose his balance and fall flat on his face.

    Thanks for ending the zoo debate toward the top of this page. I like to think of Flickr as a place of peace and fellowship instead of debating the issues. There's other places for that, but anyway.....awesome photo. I prefer photos of animals in their natural habitat, but this is one nice zoo shot. Funny, too.
