Fury Nellyphant

Oh yes! It looks like a super wise little old man elephant doesn't it!  It's the intact and perfectly (almost) preserved remains of a little bubby wooly mammoth.

A fury baby elephant.

You surely understand by now that I love elephants so the fluffy ones are extra special.

It blows my mind to think how many thousands....maybe millions of years ago this little thing was actually alive and breathing air and running around.  And here it is on display.

There has been talking of trying to reintroduce such a species to the world today - now as much as there is a part of me that wants to jump up and down clapping in a demented fashion - I think this is wrong and a really bad idea - some things are meant to be left in the past.
