The relative elephantine

Although the African bush elephant is often photographed, its true size can seldom be gauged because few photographers have a search-image for scale via familiar objects. There is consequently usually a surprise factor in photos which happen by chance to show the relative sizes of the adult male of this species relative to the human species and sedan cars.
