Elephant Pedicure

The Chitwan National Park (Nepal) made the elephant a pedicure. Of course, this is done not for the sake of aesthetic beauty, but only to clear the horn covers (they are very clearly seen in the first photo), which accumulates a lot of parasites, to remove multiple corns and calluses. By the way, in the same horn channels domesticated elephants can be got and mice that feed on it by these parasites, thereby causing discomfort elephants. And more than anything else is the largest land animal of the world is afraid of small mice, seeing that simply falls into a rage, trampling everything, just to crush your little faster "enemy". Here's to you the causes and origins of multiple stories and parables relating to elephants and mice :)
