Elephant's Long Memory

Tail of the flat snapping turtle


While taking a long drink at a pond, an elephant happened to glance up and spotted a snapping turtle lazing on a nearby stone. Its eyes narrowing, the elephant lumbered over, raised a foot, and pressed the turtle flat.

Observing the murder from the jungle, a zebra wandered over.

“Why the heck did you do that?”

“This was the same animal that bit off the tip of my trunk over ten years ago.”

The zebra’s eyes widened. “The same one? You must have an incredible memory!”

Raising its head proudly, the elephant said, “I have turtle recall.”
