Who / What Am I? 18/07

Hello everyone,

It is HOT! It is so hot, that I am melting here. Are you hot too or are you loving the heat wave?

It is funny how the British talk (and moan) about the weather all the time. When I was growing up I had this vision of a Brit in my head – a man with an umbrella talking about the weather. I never understood why you would talk about the weather so much and then… I moved to UK. The weather is so crazy here that it would be bizarre not to talk about it, am I right? Anyway apparently I am picking up a lot of typical English behaviours so therefore it is only normal that weather talk is one of them.

Oh my goodness it’s hot or did I mention that already?

Normally at this point I would be giving you the answer to last weeks’ picture then hit you with something new but not today… today it is too hot to sit down and rummage through the pictures in search of something new and exciting (this is reason number one) but (reason number two) I am also running out of ideas. So today’s Who What Am I will be a bit different.

I will of course tell you about last week shot.

All of you in favour of the elephant were right. Have a look…

Did you know that female elephants are called cows? They start to have calves when they are about 12 years old and they are pregnant for 22 months, wow!

And something else, which is shocking – an adult elephant needs to drink around 210 litres of water a day – A DAY! Shocking isn’t it? A shortage of water in some parts of the world, I think we may have found the culprit.

And one more thing, which is very interesting – elephants are herbivores and can spend up to 16 hours a day collecting leaves, twigs, bamboo and roots.*

And now for the twist…

No new picture today; instead I would like to ask for your help to give me some new ideas. Please tell me about the most weird, bizarre picture you have ever seen. Maybe it was a close up of something ordinary or maybe something totally unique in its nature. I would really appreciate your help.

Stay cool and have fun over the weekend!
