Elephant Art is making a difference in the welfare of the Asian Elephant. All proceeds from the purchase of this artwork, created by the elephants, go directly to the Maetaeng Elephant Clinic, which provides free medical care to all elephants in the region.
Elephants usually have 26 teeth: the incisors, known as the tusks, 12 deciduous premolars, and 12 molars.
Unlike most mammals, which grow baby teeth and then replace them with a single permanent set of adult teeth, elephants are polyphyodonts that have cycles of tooth rotation throughout their lives.
When mummy and daddy left, I was a little sad and missed them for a while but I soon cheered up when grandma said we would go to see the elephants at Mae Taeng Elephant Park the following day. The next day we got up very early, for me anyway, and set off for the elephant park. I was very excited.
