Took me about 5 hours and Omnia's post to realise you were talking about one of the 4 disc-bearing elephants :roll:

But I've just read WA & the last thing the witches do is go & see the elephant. So I was thinking of that one :wink:

If Nelly is not welly
And has an upset belly
Then give it lots of jelly
To wobble on a plate.

As Nelly tries to pick up
The jelly, it might hiccup
Which activates the syrup
And leave its health to Fate...

Ah, but doesn't Fate play games with the lives of men (and elephants probably) and CHEATS!

Without the elephants, the Disc may not survive and Fate would not be able to play any games...

Even Fate needs the Discworld. Besides, an Elephant trumps a God!

What sort of trees are they giving them that the leaves make the elephants bark?

Brilliant dog jokes aside :lol: - in Africa, bark is in fact what Ellies do eat naturally. Obviously they're not grazers with such short necks, despite the dextrous trunk and as they often live in quite arid areas they do browse a lot and sometimes do a lot of damage to crops. This is why farmers aren't too keen on them as it will only take a couple of elephants a few hours to completely trash a maize field... and they have to eat a lot as bark ain't too nourishing. They like fruit and nuts too and go crazy for Marula pods when in season (yes that's the same fruit as in Amarula the Bailey's like cream liqueur). In captivity though hay amkes up the bulk of their food
