    Enjoy your meal :o). They do it the same at the zoo in Wuppertal in Germany. It’s amazing that they can chew these stinging needles. Elephants have such soft mouths. I have to wear leather gloves to carry our christmas tree, and even then its tricky.
    Hello David. All good wishes for the New Year to you and all your beloved ones.

  5. Wonderful! I wish there was an elephant nearby to take care of mine. I’m tempted to rent a chipper, set it up in my front yard, and invite all the neighbors to use it. I could get a big pile of fresh mulch!
