Elephants at the Last Watering Hole

A Group of Elephants

Okay, well now I feel dumb. I’ve mistakenly told many people that a group of elephants is called an “Intelligence” of elephants. But now that I look it up, I’m not so sure about that. I think it’s a great name for a group of animals, like a “Murder” of crows or a “Crash” of hippos. But now that I look it up, I see the group-naming may be a “Parade” or a “Memory.” It makes me wonder who is in charge of all this naming business. Anyone have a good contact with the OED I can ask?

Daily Photo – Elephants at the Last Watering Hole

While in Zimbabwe, our workshop (come to my New Zealand one!!) stopped under a tree for about two hours of silence. We were waiting for elephants to come by one of the last watering holes in the dry season. If you’re a regular reader of the blog, you know that elephants are my favorite animal! Well, to be specific, it’s my favorite mammal. My favorite water-based animal is a type of cephalopod is the cuttlefish, but they are harder to photograph.
