Captain Morgan, Elephant Style
A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to experience the Busch Garden’s Elephant Trainer for a Day program. It was an amazing day where I was able to work along side the Elephant Trainers. It was a lot of work and mildly (aka completely) exhausting, but I got to spend the day with some really cool people and some amazing elephants. I learned a tremendous amount about the elephants, and found that they were even more beautiful, sweet, smart, and ornery than I had imagined. Each of them had such a distinct personality… and distinct preferences in food. I had to love my vegan sisters.
Believe me, you haven’t really experienced morning breath until you’ve had a curious elephant exhale in your face while trying to smell you… and then, you surprise yourself when you still think they’re beautiful and amazing.
Anyway, these are a couple of my favorite photos so far. Will post more on Flickr later.
