I would really like to hear from you great folks by leaving a comment, thanks.


..........................Top Elephant Facts.................................
Most of us are well aware of elephants and have even seen at least one of them in person at a zoo or circus. In some of these locations you can even ride them due to their calm and gentle nature.

There are many great facts about the elephant though that you should learn about, and this is the place to do so.

1. Elephants are the largest of all land animals in the world.

2. It takes a female 22 months from conception to have a baby. This is longer than any other animal in the world.

3. A newborn elephant can stand up shortly after being born. They can weigh up to 260 pounds.

4. The average life span for an elephant in the wild is from 50 to 70 years. They oldest known elephant in the world lived to be 82 years of age.

5. The heaviest elephant in the world weighed 26,000 pounds.

6. The word elephant means ivory.

7. It is only a myth that elephants are afraid of mice. This legend states that the mice can run up the trunk and suffocate them but there is no truth to this at all.

8. The trunk of an elephant has more than 40,000 muscles in it.

9. Elephants are herbivores, this means that they are plant eaters.

10. Elephants consume large amounts of water up to 15 quarts of it at once.

11. Elephants love to swim.

You should pop over and get some snow boarding in, we have over 4 feet of powder snow on the local mountains and none down here in the city of Vancouver. 4 below up top and 6 above down here

"It is only a myth that elephants are afraid of mice. This legend states that the mice can run up the trunk and suffocate them but there is no truth to this at all."

Well, they did do a special on Mythbusters, and while I wouldn't use the word afraid, they were certainly concerned by the sudden appearance of a mouse.

In the old day in my country, I could even see elephants on the road! but today things get better, almost none elephant on roads, because it's not safe for both them and human.

The elephant you draw, is it an African elephant?

Yes African he is, are the Elephants you speak of from Thailand?

Wonderful work - I love it! You captures great detail in teh elephant and the grass, and I just love the vibrant colors.

Strangely enough when I was a kid in Africa, we went on a self guided safari and we were charged by a bull elephant - he broke off before stepping on our little stuck German Fiat with us in it, thank goodness. So this picture really struck a chord with me.

I think Mythbuster(the TV show) put a mouse out in front of an elephant - and the elephant acted scared - but probably I would guess that it didn't want to accidentally step on it and get mouse stuff stuck to the bottom of its foot. >.<

Well from 1 Canadian to another , thanks for dropping by. Your story makes my painting so much more real to me.Thanks for that.
I have some more paintings of animals that you may have run into.

I adore your horses and animal paintings. Not sure how digital art works but I can swing a paint brush around a bit.

Have a great weekend and stay in touch
