I know, I know, I have done elephants for e before and they don't have an awful lot to do with writing or literature but, but
I love elephants
And I saw baby elephants yesterday
and my summer job at the zoo has me selling things in the elephant gift shop (this can be nothing other than fate)
and I more or less consider elephants my spirit animals.
Amazing things about elephants:
Their social system is a matriarchal clan. Kind of like amazon warriors
They're as fierce as amazon warriors
They mourn their dead
The entire clan takes care of their young
They symbolize wisdom
They always look like they're smiling
Have you ever seen a baby elephant play?
Samwise Gamgee was more impressed by the existence of elephants than elves, orcs, dwarves or nasgal.
