Inadvertent self-portrait

Sundara belongs to a herd of Asian elephants that live at England's Chester Zoo, a group that includes her younger brother, her Mom, and her grandmother. Like the others, she sleeps for about 4 hours a night - 2 hours on each side. The zoo explains, "All of our paddocks are covered in a thick layer of sand which gives our herd a nice, soft surface to sleep on. The elephants prefer to sleep on a slight slope, so every couple of days the sand is turned over and banked up into piles for them to lean against." One morning last week, Sundara's keepers found this crisp impression where the 8-year-old had lain.
