Um, does that elephant have five legs? Photo taken in Botswana.
The teen in my giggles hilariously. The biologist in me was curious if…. well, here in the SW USA, we have lots of cattle. When the bulls are slaughtered, the male members are turned into these long jerky sticks – called Bully Sticks, for dog treats. I wondered if the bull elephants are ever slaughtered for food if the equivalent happens to their ‘fifth leg’?
I have never heard of Bully Sticks. I’ve heard of Rocky Mountain Oysters, but not Bully Sticks. Let’s hope no elephants are being slaughtered in today’s world. But you raise a good question as to whether all of the parts were used in the old days. Hard for me to imagine though.
It’s just happy to see you!
Or he’s telling me not to mess with him. Yikes.
Whoa. I’m blushing a bit over here. That’s all I have to say about that!
O.M.G. I have no words. 🙂
I was speechless myself.
OMG – that elephant is a raging exhibitionist. Lol
He has more guts than me!
LOL did you feel a little bit dirty taking this picture?
I was blushing that’s for sure!
It surprised me
Um, I don’t think so.
I think you’re right.
Holy crap!!! What the heck did you say to him to cause that LOL!!
Why are you blaming me?! I’m innocent I tell you. Innocent!
Sure, sure!! LOL
Actually, Mike says to tell you that is actually his twin brother, but we don’t brag about it LOL!!!
Oh you two, now I’m really blushing.
Bwahahaaa – thanks for this 😉
Men never cease of attempting to impress – regardless of species. How funny!
It made me giggle–not in front of him though. I would never do that.
YIKES – oh my goodness! There must have been one hot-looking female elephant around.
was it the mating season or what?
not sure really. we saw lions mating a few days later, but not sure if it was the right time for elephants. The guide didn’t mention that it was.
It really does look like it was ready for a female companion. Shame poor thing.
Well I hope he has lots of babies.
