Bells around the elephant's neck

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 5 June 2018 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

You can see the folds in the neck ..the white / pink patches are because the elephant is not young anymore.

Bells are nice, but my eyes are attracted by the elephant's skin !

@Hiro: The older the elephant, more the spots on the skin! Otherwise they are a uniform dark grey :)

So that is how an elephant turns "grey"? I, too, find the skin textures enchanting.

@beach: Thank you very much Beach,...when they are young, the elephants are uniformly grey..but as they grow old, the spots appear.
