How do you hide an elephant?

Why did the elephant paint its toenails purple?
So it could hide in the jacaranda tree.

Don’t look too hard.

We went out three times looking for elephants, but they were nowhere around.  Finally yesterday evening we found them.  You’d think it would be easy.  They are BIG.  They seem even bigger after you hear a couple of stories about bull elephants overturning Land Cruisers to impress the girls.  Also they make a lot of noise.  They spend their days knocking down trees and stripping the bark off.  I’m not a lady elephant, but I was still impressed.

This elephant didn’t want the younger male getting near his herd.
