what i didn’t know about these creatures is that their sense of hearing and smell are terrific. apparently elephants can also hear through their trunks, which are sensitive to vibrations. this means communicating over distances that can be several kilometers away. they have built in telephones! they can hear through the ground! the rub? their sight isn’t so great usually. 8″ x 10″ in moleskine.
while i’m not quite losing my hair, my memory seems to be fading at an alarming rate. perhaps that’s why i have some strange interest in these creatures. they’re probably smarter than i am on average too, relatively speaking. it’s sad to me that their only natural predators are humans. loxodonta africana in moleskine.
