^That's a nice shot.
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!!!!!

Heh, nice lenses really help in this case! I have an Aunt and Uncle who are into professional wildlife photography for a living, and most often the case, they aren't all that close as the pictures would make it seem, thanks to some neat telephoto lenses. So, the likely case is that this was taken from a vehicle, keeping the photographer safe and preventing the animal from getting upset. The photographer got some great timing for a head-on shot.

would an elephant shrew count?
After a thorough review of taxonomy, I would have to say no.

Yup, that's a good one. We've had a nice turnout and some great pictures so far. I will probably put up the voting thread Saturday morning or afternoon, so keep those entries coming.

Last call for elephants! I'll put the voting poll up this afternoon, if the creek don't rise.
