What an amazing picture!
Glad you told us there is an elephant conservation center. In Florida, is it?
Once we visited a private elephant sanctuary in Arkansas. They cared for eleven unwanted or ex-circus elephants.

I remember..You work in a RR room..my former lifetime. It always bothered me to see elephants in the circus so I am happy if they started something to help...

Love it. Elephants always look so eager to please those they are working for. but I know there have been many mistreated.

Fantastic photo, usogirl. I wonder if elephants think at all about the curiosity of humans standing on their (the elephant's) heads. I do hope B & B treats their animals well. I am of two minds when it comes to animals in captivity, especially those that are put on display for purely entertainment purposes. I enjoy seeing them, but would much rather do so in the wild, were it possible.

Thank you for this - Elephants are my favorite animals. They're so smart. I've bookmarked the link you gave us for when I've more time to read through it. Great CC post!

First of all - it's an awesome photo, and I love it!

Second - you and B/S absolutely crack me up. Your friendship is special beyond words, and your mental and spiritual connection with each other is obvious ;-) You two are so much fun!

That's a great photo! It's amazing how small that human looks on top of the elephant. I love elephants, there such big, goofy creatures but so magnificent!

Great picture! Did I read that right, that you are in Houston, and possibly not far from me? I saw a comment on another blog mentioning Fairmont (Kohl's). I was there today! I'm in Clear Lake, or did you already know that? What have I missed?
