    Well according to that, the elephants we know today all started in Africa but the Asian elephant later migrated.

    Why?

    How?

    And which elephant decided Africa wasn't good enough and emigrated to the promised land?

    And now I've found out there's sub-species of elephant.

    In Africa there's the Cape elephant, the Steppe elephant and the Forest elephant.

    How?

    When?

    Which one came first?

    And in Asian there's 4 sub-species - Indian, Malayan, Ceylon and Sumatran.

    How the heck...?

    I really will not sleep tonight.


    I blame Darwin.

    The elephant takes BIG steppes, and the tortoise takes sloooooow steppes.

    Love isn't about finding someone you can live with.
    It's about finding someone you can share a lifetime with.

    I was in an exotic pet shop today admiring the tarantulas and they had a pair of torts.

    They had a dish of brocolli. Shall I go back tomorrow and tell them off?

    Give them a from me Broccoli is super rich in oxalics which stops the absorption of calcium a HUGE no no - It is okay for other animals as they don't need the extra calcium for their shell density- only for their bones. This diet is much more suited:
    Diet and healthy growth

    If you'd pass on my web link next time you are in though it'd be much appreciated (Tortoise-world.com - Home of the original UK Tortoise Breeders list, by Josh Parry)
