As you might have picked up in my Pittsburgh Zoo post, I have a thing for elephants. I've collected stuffed animals and figurines, read books, and admired them in zoos for years. But a few years ago my mom bought me a metal elephant with blue plastic sides a few years ago. It is meant to be outside and has a solar light in the middle, causing it to glow blue at night. But I had left it setting in my room for years, just sitting around. So this past week I moved it outside and I really like it.
