  • A nice rule of thumb (or, rather, 'rule of ear') to differentiate between the two types of pachyderm...

    The ear of the Indian elephant resembles a map of India.

  • Her face is great!
    Very scared and excited! - Ashley Shea
  • nice texture - Robert Davism
  • the elephant is looking straight at teh camera. posing alsmost? - m.yarnell
  • there is a tiger just off screen ... O_o' - sjonsvenson
