When my family goes to the zoo, one of my favorite animals is the elephant. I don't know why - maybe it's because they're massive but generally appear gentle. Anyways, one of the fascinating facts I learned about elephants while researching for my novel is that elephants can smell water up to 3 miles away. Crazy! Unless we're talking about the smell of the ocean, or the smell of a chlorinated pool, I can't even think of what water smells like. But, elephants can smell it from up to 3 miles away! Just another amazing animal fact that helps show how nature is, well ... amazing!
