An elephant eating a Christmas tree
Photographed at the Tiergarten Schoenbrunn Zoo in Vienna, where discarded trees are offered to the elephants as an edible treat. This frankly staggers my mind; I can't conceive of any herbivore enjoying a resinous fir tree (although in Africa I suppose they eat thornier and even less-tasty plants). You learn something every day.
