OK so who just saw this?

I LOVE elephants with a passion. I thought it was excellent and I shed a few tears ... :'(

Such majestic animals.

I never fail to be amazed by their behaviour and their sheer beauty.

Very emotional animals ...

The way the mother picked up her baby and held him between her tusk and trunk and carried him into the shade because he was too weak to walk.
Brought a lump to my throat.

Same here.

I love the way they look after the little ones and also their dead.

Yeah

The herd had to leave a dying female (I think) and later they all went back to pay their respects.
I was in awe

They are really awe-inspiring, aren't they?

I think my Scarby fancied riding on an elephant's back! Imagine a tiny guinea on an ellie!

Should have mentioned earlier we've got a Martin Colbeck exhibition at our hospital at the moment. Loads of gorgeous ellies.
