"Miniature Elephants are a Unique Subspecies
The pygmy elephants of Borneo are baby-faced little pachyderms, with oversized ears, plump bellies and tails so long they sometimes drag on the ground as they walk.
For years, it’s been believed that these tiny elephants were simply the semi-tame remnants of a domesticated herd abandoned on the island years ago.
But a WWF study proved that wrong and Borneo’s pygmy elephants are likely to be officially declared a new subspecies. That makes them a high conservation priority. Yet they remain the least-understood elephants in the world. "
Some more weird, but funny stuff.....
