Each wrinkle will tell the story of this elephant, Ruthie. What an amazing animal this is. I hope he or she has some company, they cannot be alone :(

Oh, I so would love to know an elephant. If you like to read, and want to read something different, read The Elephant Whisperer. I forget who it is by, but it is one of the best books I have ever read. About a refuge in Africa that took in a rogue elephant herd...
