Wow... that is one lucky

Wow... that is one lucky little elephant. I do not think that it would have turned out the same if his family unit did not stick around to help him out. There are no pictures to find out, but I wonder if the crock went into a "death roll". That little guy would have been screwed if he did. His nose would have looked like a cork screw for the rest of his life lol Elephants are amazing creatures and their social structure fascinates me. I have a professor that has worked in Africa on elephant research for the last decade. The stories that he tells are amazing. We always try and get him to go off on tangents about Africa because for one, the stories are insanely entertaining but it also gets him off track on the current lecture. Pretty funny because he does not even recognize what we are doing.

Seriously who lets their five

Seriously who lets their five year old daughter swim in croc infested water?  Are they insane?  Yes that girl is lucky, but I can' believe she was allowed to swim in that water.  As far as the elephant that was an amazing picture and reminds me how resilant animals are.  Could you imagine if that was your nose in the crocs mouth?  The elephant was probably good as new the next day.  You don't mess with female elephants.

Anyone else notice that the real bad ...sses in the animal world are the females?  Really no different in the human world.
