Trovelore Elephant Brooch Pin
Elephants got their name form the Greek word 'elephas' which means 'ivory'. Reaching a height of over 3 metres, they are the largest land mammals on earth weighing over 5000 kilograms by eating over 12 to 18 hours a day. These emotional beastes cry when they are upset, trupet when they are happy and are the only other animal besides humans to grieve for their dead.
