Elephant treadmill.

This report is about an elephant in ALaska (Brrr... chatter.... brrrr).

Oh the angle. I picked up on the story from here

What caught Kees's eye was this.
"Feeding stations were placed high so that she now stretches for her food. Treats are hidden around her enclosure to help keep her busy. She's provided birch logs to strip the bark off."



Elephants use those dainty little ivories to strip trees.





You can almost fit the treadmill thru this hole.





The trees above are Baobab (Adansonia digitata).

Dayum!
I never knew they did that. But then again, the only elephants I see are the ones in the San Diego Zoo.
They are amazing creatures.
