ENTER! Misc Avatar Contest: Elephants!

Yes, at the suggestion of the rascally Rhubarbodendron, the theme of our latest Avatar Contest shall be those proboscally endowed non-ruminant mammals of the family elephantidae; i.e. pachyderms, mammoths, and mastodons. In short: Elephants. African or Asian, living or extinct, circus or civilian. They all qualify. No fictional elephants, though. Dumbo need not apply. Sorry, kid.

Art is acceptable in the form of paintings, naturalist sketches, et cetera, as long as it is non media.

It can even be a picture of an elephant by an elephant:



Just be careful bringing them in here. Those suckers are big.



And, uh, be sure they're housebroken. Thanks. Go for it!

I hope this is "naturalist" enough to qualify:

If I was as close to an actual elephant looking like that, as that photo looks as if the photographer was, I would shit my pants!!!!!

I'd recommend to very carefully (but quickly) withdraw first and shit later. It's more hygienic and might safe your life at the same time
