    I Think They Are Amazing

    I think elephants are the most majestic animals on earth. They are huge and powerful, yet affectionate and protective and wise. They grieve loss of family like humans do...They are amazing. I would love to see them out in the wild in there own territory one day...

    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.

    I have a crush on them as long as I remember, the giants of nature, be they lions or whales, eagles, rhino's, hippo's  or elephants. In spite of the sheer power they emanate, they are  highly vulnerable and lethally threatened by mankind. Among them, the elephants are...

    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.
