The Elephant and the Tortoise

Just got back from holiday to the Addo Elephant Park in the Eastern Cape a while ago and going through our photos. We got this one of an elephant and a tortoise drinking water together at one of the watering holes - the photo doesn't really capture it (as usual) but it was really cool to see !

A bit like seeing those birds that sit on the hippo's (?) back, isn't it? Nice photo.

Here I thought this title was referring to a joke or a parable of some sort. Cool picture!
