Today my hubby took a Baby Elephant in his lunch bag.
Did you know a baby elephant weighs around 250 pounds and is about three feet tall? I was present to watch the birth of the elephant Packy, born in 1962 at the Portland, Zoo. Sometimes, my father, who worked at the Zoo would let me feed the elephants. I tried to give baby Packy an apple. At that time, he was too small to hold it in the tip of his trunk so he wrapped his trunk around it — and around my hand! I tried to remove my hand, and he thought I was taking the apple back and wouldn’t let go. We played tug of war for a while before he finally got the apple and I got my hand.
