GeneralElephants don't peel their bananas! Pin

I have just come in close contact with elephants again. Their droppings are all over the roads and trails around the village.

The event is the third day of the Thai new year celebration of Songkran (happy new year 2775 B.E.). Pachyderms converge on the village every year to carry the aspiring monks to the Wat (temple) for their induction into the monkhood. My 12 year old nephew is doing this for the second time this year.

I always forget how large these jumbos are until I see one in a field eating by tearing branches from a tree as I did on my daily bicycle ride this morning.

Getting up close to them this afternoon just reinforced the awe I have for these giants of the natural world. One thing I have learned from watching them graze on my banana trees as they lumber down the road next to my field which is lined with banana trees is that they don't peel their bananas before they eat them. They just grab the whole bunch and stuff them into their mouths.

Just thought I would share. Big Grin | :-D
