London's Elephants - No. 11 1/2 in a series

I love London. If this was a book launch in Paris, there would have been a clever, artistic interpretation of mammoths in pre-history. New York? Hey, let's sell everyone a Mammoth Burger. Here? Come on folks, let's put a woolly mammoth in Trafalgar Square.

Don't you just love Garef (Gareth) the mamef (mammoth)?

Follow this link to find out what it was all about, or just enjoy the sight of a woolly mammoth in London.

Gareth has sadly been downgraded to 0.5 of an pachyderm because you don't have the opportunity to see him (except here,of course).

It was Dan the Elephant man that alerted me to this event. Do explore his site if you'd like to daydream about what it might be like to earn youn way through life working with these magnificent animals.

Ham, months ago when you posted the first few elephant photos, I doubted if you'd have enough elephants in London for a long series...BUT you do! at least a dozen now...this mammoth is cool :-)


Blogger Michael Salone said ... (17:39) : 

I'm very disappointed in you Ham. Did you ask Gareth's permission to take his photo?


Blogger Ham said ... (21:22) : 

These elephants just keep comin' Mind you - would you want to stop one?

I can tell you that there are at least two more......

Oh, and Michael, I wih I was being facetious but yes, I did. Well, alright, actually Gareth asked if I could take his picture. Yes I do speak mammoth.

Oh, ham - I do just love your take on London life! Michael - I thought his forte was self portraits?

Luv the Mammoth! That's one critter they really ought to try to clone back into life from extinction... especially since it was most likely early humans who hunted them to extinction. There's no shortage of frozen mammoth DNA up in the arctic tundra.
