Hole in her Ear: Your Daily Elephant

See the sunlight on her trunk, coming through the hole in her ear?  As if pierced for a giant earring.

  1. Is that her leg or her trunk?

    1. Yes, Millie, it’s her trunk. Thanks so very much. I’ve fixed the post!

  2. or evidence of a bullet hole . . .

    1. No Quiall, the elephant is Morula, and the hole is where Jabu caught her ear in his tusk. Elephant ears are often jagged and torn at the edges, because they are as thin as silk. The hole no longer exists, she caught it in thorns and now her ear is jagged in that spot.

      1. Thanks for clearing that up. whew!
