It is a little known breed of animal, the elephaunt. It is closely related to the elephant in looks, but it is a lot smaller, more of a pygmy elephant. Plus it has a remarkable character, and likes to eat bamboo. A lot.
This particular elephaunt is called Dave, he’s been around for a while now, trumpeting here and there, eating bamboo and gently patting people on the head with his trunk. What a nice fella.
He’s going to come to Africa with me, maybe we will be able to find some friends for him to play with. Although, Dave is orginally from Thailand, I’m sure he’ll get on just great with the African elephaunts. Their ears may differ slightly though; who knows?
