I Love Elephants

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 226 People

    I have always found elephants fascinating

    creatures. I adore the way the love and protect one another. That's why, for several years now, I've collected figurines of elephants. I have a rule though. I never buy them. They can only be gifted. That makes them extra extra special. They become treasures.

    Elephant Ride.

    You have been on an Elephant Ride. But have you seen an Elephant Ride ?Look closely .....Since the elephants tire out walking long distances - they joy-ride on trucks .

    as a child I wanted to be a zoo keeper

    Elephant Camp In Dubare, Near Madikeri, Karnataka - India.

    Elephants

    Elephants mean luck when the trunk is up and I have always loved everything about them from their colour to the way they carry themselves with strength and control with a carefree attitude.
