Rare MicroPygmy Elephants
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Rare MicroPygmy Elephants
Rare MicroPygmy Elephants
We were lucky enough to capture this little-known and rarely seen species on the Serengeti in Tanzania. Our driver said he had seen them only twice before in his 30 years of safari experience. They live secretively among the scattered rock outcroppings (kopjes), feeding on small plants and roots. They are hunted by hyenas and occasionally by leopards.

First in my Elephantastic series.

I think at that size they could also be successfully hunted by toy poodles. Did you bring one home? :)
