my good friend Rambo...
For Thai believe, the Elephant is a holy animal, protectors of the old Kingdom of Siam...but the most important thing, the Elephant can read your mind, remember one face like a picture for ever. The Elephant in the old days was used like a old tanks for war with Burma and invasors...you'll have two options with them....they love you and accept or they can try to kill you showing all this amazing Power
This is my good friend Rambo, Thai Baby Elephant, he's four years old and in this village, the people was very surprised with me and Rambo, seems like we was friends in another life
Elephants are an important part of Thai culture and the Thai way of life. They are a traditional symbol of royal power, an essential feature of Buddhist art and architecture, an a spiritual mentor for people of all walks of life. In the early part of this century, elephants roamed freely and in multitude throughout Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. Prior to the 18th century they were the main machine of Southeast Asian war, a Thai king of the late 17th century having had 20,000 war elephants trained for battle. Elephants in Thailand have always been a symbol of both power and peace. They have always performed the most exacting physical tasks. And they have always been well loved
