African Rainforest & Pygmy Peoples
African forest elephant (Loxodonta cyclotis) (Gabon).
"Elephant dung is so rich in vegetable fibre that in Sri Lanka they make paper out of it. While in Thailand they use it to grow mushrooms. But that's nothing. In the West, where we are always just that one step ahead, you find it on exhibition in museums and art galleries."
