Elephant Trunk Hill

Tramping through the hills around Guilin in China is busy work, so at the end of the day an elephant gets thirsty. There’s nothing like dipping your trunk in to the river to cool off and taking a long, thirst quenching drink. Yet when you’re made of stone you might be there for quite a long time… Elephant Trunk Hill is made of limestone karst. It was shaped by the dissolution of a layer or layers of soluble bedrock until its outline became decidedly elephantine. The first settlers along this stretch of river must have seen it as some sort of sign – the city of Guilin has thrived for over 1500 years. Yet there is a rather sad legend attached to the Guilin’s elephant.” w/ photos

Kick-Boxing Orangutans

“The orangutans, wearing garish shorts and boxing gloves trade punches in a boxing ring at a theme park in Bangkok, Thailand. This horrifying footage show cheering tourists drawn to the barbaric sport at a theme park in Thailand. While an orangutan pretends to be knocked out of the boxing ring, others, dressed in bikinis are trained to pick up litter from the stage at the end of the show. The apes kick-box each other as a spectacle for the tourists in shows that last more than 30 minutes, before being returned to their dark cages. Animal campaigners say the apes – weighing up to 250lbs – could do themselves serious damage in the boxing ring. They warn that it is hastening the end of the orangutan – which experts say will be extinct in the wild in only few years.”
