Goodness gracious! How easy will it be from now on to instantly know the difference between African and Asian elephants! Sooo helpful. Thank you!!

This reminds me of a post not too long ago defining the differences between a cheetah and a leopard. That, too, was a post that made an enormous difference for me and I can now instantly discern which is a leopard and which is a cheetah.

Again, thank you for such a wondrous job educating all of us out here. Good stuff!! 🙂
