Photo of the Day


Who says you can't teach an elephant to tap dance?

The animal spotted a curious toddler holding a snack [and] clambered up onto a narrow wall on the edge of its enclosure to snatch it.

Balancing on its tiptoes the elephant teetered precariously on the four inch wide ledge.

It then reached out its long trunk out to gently grab the food from the toddler tourist who was being held up by his father.

That photo reminds me of a Latin American children’s rhyme: “
Un Elefante Se Balanceaba
” or “A Balancing Elephant”. Ask any kid in the Spanish world, and they will sing that song by heart. From Argentina to Mexico and out to Spain, we can all repeat it in our sleep. And of course, the whole FAMILY can join in a sing-along.

Now, if you could teach one to *pole* dance...

I need to drag my camera junk off to the local zoo. There are some really neat things to see.

This is just a baby elephant. I wonder what my dog would think of this critter.
