(@pamelabole This was at an elephant rescue farm. The elephants were very friendly with both their handlers and us visitors. It was a package where we each had our own elephant for a day. We had to check their teeth, their stool, their ears and eyes. Then we had to wash our elephant - which they loved, feed them and finally ride our elephant bareback. As they are quite wide, I could barely walk afterwards ! Getting on was a riot as the elephant would get on his front knees and I would straddle his trunk, then he lifted me up in the air. I then had to scramble off the trunk onto his head... then turn around. !!!! Thanks for your great comment.

Excellent work Jenny.

Feeding the elephants was so interesting as they love sugar cane and the wonderful dexterity of their trunk is amazing. Also, Asian elephants teeth have a compressed diamond-shaped lamella profile that are adapted to the elephant’s diet of grasses, trees, shrubs and bark. Their teeth work by moving in a forwards and backwards motion, grinding down plant material. This is why they can eat sugar cane so readily. They also have about six sets of these molars in a lifetime.
