Elephant Spies!


http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7312511.stm

"Tigers are so secretive and they live in such dense jungle that it is very difficult for a human film crew to get close to them.

"But elephants are the ultimate four-by-four camera vehicle - and have allowed us to film these animals closer than we have ever been able to film them before."

Kent Brockman: We've come up with a camera so tiny it fits into this oversized novelty hat.

Some pretty impressive footage, but it seems like they might want to invest in some sort of non-reflective coating, to keep animals from becoming enraged by their own reflections.

My reflection enrages me also, but I think the tiger thinks it's another tiger.
