Hello and thanks for visiting! This is a blog dedicated to what I think are one of the most interesting animals in existence. I post photos, videos, articles, art, etc. Please feel free to follow and recommend if you are so inclined! :)

“If anyone wants to know what elephants are like, they are like people, only more so.” -- Peter Corneille

“Elephants are symbols of might and memory, harmony and patience, power and compassion. We are equivocal about them, as we are about anything which evokes strong feelings in us. We love and fear them, kill and revere them, see them as beasts of the moon with crescent tusks or as buffoons in baggy pants.”

 

Holy crap!

I logged on to reblog that last post and discovered this:

Despite my pretty severe neglect, you lovely people keep this blog going and I am so humbled. I promise to try harder to post original content again. And maybe to celebrate this milestone, do another giveaway? I’ll see what I can come up with. :)

Thank you so much for following, everyone!

Trunk & Tail- I had completely forgotten to re upload this photograph when I started this little blog again. It was taken at Australia Zoo, and although I would never normally put up a photo taken of an animal at a zoo, this was a moment that I had to capture; it was so sad yet lovely in an odd way.

Folding a Life-Size Origami Elephant Out of a Single Sheet of Paper
"Origami has always been an artform that’s fun to watch. But now one Swiss artist is attempting to elevate the concept of origami as performance art with an Indiegogo campaign to help him realize his whimsical ambition to fold a life-size elephant from a single sheet of paper."
