MAMMOTH TASK

Lying down maybe a simple task for most Animals including us Humans, however it is a HERCULEAN TASK for these Giants.

I will not dwell further on the Location or the Genus etc as these can be read in previous posts titled MAMMOTH BATH and BABY ELEPHANTS.

Trace the moves in the pictures that follow to see  what a MAMMOTH TASK it is for this Splendid Tusker to simply Lie down on it’s Back.

On One Knee Like a Knight in Grey.

Half way Down and holding onto it’s Tusk for support ?

On Two Knees

What a relief, finally  I can stretch my Back says Surender the 17 year old Tusker.

Finally in Position to Lie Down

We are so beset by our own Woes that we forget to see how Difficult Life can be for Others.

  1. How amazing that you’ve managed to capture these sequence of pictures! You’re right: most of us take being able to lie down for granted.
    “We are so beset by our own Woes that we forget to see how Difficult Life can be for Others.” Thank you for the important, humbling reminder!

  2. I have found several of your recent animal posts saddening to say this least and admit I have actually ridden an elephant through jungle. Somehow we trust the animals are treated well. How is one to know?! I do think that breeding tigers, domesticating lions so people can then shoot them for “sport”, and such is very wrong. Anyone who thinks he or she can pet an undrugged tiger is obviously in a state of illusion.
