(Day 287) - Lunch with an Elephant

CJ was happy to get a photo of an elephant at the LA Zoo. This "little" guy was alone enjoying an afternoon snack. We learned that elephants can eat about 300 pounds of food a day and it takes a while to eat that much food. So they spend about 12-18 hours a day eating!

CJ was impressed. Of course, he doesn't eat that much food. When I think about it though, it probably would take little CJ about 12 hours to eat a human-sized burger! 🐘😋
Cute shot!

Thank you all very much for the comments. It was fascinating to learn that detail about elephants.

@joysabin - I'm a fast eater myself so I couldn't imagine eating for that long! :D

@cjphoto @joysabin -- and I'm a super slow eater so I'd have to be eating almost 24 hours a day!

@jyokota - Hahahaha so funny. That helps you to really savor your food though!
