Endearing Elephants

I have a memory like an elephant. In fact, elephants often consult me. —Noel Coward 

That water feels good on the feet!

Riding atop an elephant in a forest, the elephant would uproot a tree for a snack, all without missing a beat. At a Moscow circus, one elephant crawled on its knees under another. At dawn, a huge elephant entered the water to playfully bathe and shower. A huge bull elephant, complete with tusks, was coming close enough for a great photo just as the guide said we needed to run. A news article spoke of marauding male adolescents, a consequence of poachers killing off the bulls who would have kept them in line. A baby jogged underneath its mother to keep up with her walk. Eminently endearing!
