Thanks-I had to look this up for a class only recently; also the difference between an African and Asian elephant.

I would stay with a glance at the snout while carefully backing away. These two are not to be toyed with. Leave them alone, they will leave you alone, unless they are really hungry. :)

I agree, Sara. I don't intend to ever be in the position to be close enough to tell.

Cher's Wildlife of the Week photos are good enough for me!!
