Elephants and Peanuts!

Did you know that the whole 'elephants-loving-peanuts' story is actually a myth? Peanuts may be used as treats for captive elephants but in the wild, the elephant's diet consists of leaves, twigs, bark, fruits, grass and roots, and seldom peanuts!

The cartoon is also a little tribute to Charles M Schulz, the creator of the classic comic strip 'Peanuts', whose work I simply adore. This is one kind of peanut an elephant would totally dig!
