And it's making my head boggle.
Was watching some random thing on TV last night and the person said that something was as strong as 26 elephants. And I wondered aloud whether he meant African elephants or Indian elephants. And then I started thinking about how elephants came to be on 2 very different continents. Did they start off all being African and then some wandered off - quite a long way - and decided to stay. Or were they all Indian elephants and some wandered off - quite a long way - and decided to stay. Or were all elephants in a completely different place and some turned left and some turned right. And then there's the ear thing. Why do Indian elephants have smaller ears. Did they always have smaller ears and the African elephants grew bigger ears or were the original Indian elephants well endowed in the ear department but they gradually evolved smaller ears.
I've been laying awake thinking about this and it's doing my head in.
I worry about me sometimes.
