ABC Wednesdays - E for elephant


No - elephants are not native to Australia and this isn't even a real one!

A few weeks back this and other 'living' creaures caught my eye. The display is in the front yard of a company that makes a range of interesting models, large and small.

My daughter collects elephant mementos, but I think this one would be out the realm of practicality!

I don't think I have ever seen a more realistic elephant.

Had me fooled. I thought the circus was in town.

Your elephant looks very real. I thought about posting one too, but mine is much smaller and it's not real either. Maybe some day. With another letter like p for pachyderm...

A bit surprised about Elephants from Down Under - I half expected "Large three-letter bird" :-)
