The Tomb of Rekhmire, Egypt c 1400BC
"Listen...I can't stop...but I thought, as it's Tuesday you deserved a little treat. So...does the idea of 'Mediterranean Dwarf Elephants' press your cuteness button? Real elephants that were smaller than Flossie the labrador? I am told by the Lady Professor that the Mediterranean Islands were covered with Dwarf Elephants in the Pleistocene. Imagine how small the baby dwarf elephants were! But there is more! Look away now if you don't want to go into cuteness overload...the only thing that could possibly be more adorable than elephants scampering around at knee height ...is the miniature woolly mammoths of Sardinia. Who wants one - hands up? Right...that's enough...I've got to dash off and make muffins...see you tomorrow."
