baby elephant at whipsnade

“The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?” ~ David Attenborough

Or in this case a zoo. A very good zoo mind you; Whipsnade, where the animals have lots of space. What you can’t tell from this picture is that this is actually a young elephant and compared to his parents who are just out of shot is a about half their size. He was enjoying rolling that barrel around. They drill holes in them and put food in it so the elephants have to work at getting their dinner.
