About every other day we go to harvest. The elephants eat banana trees and the top of pineapples in addition to fruit, grass, and some supplements if they need to bulk up. The Thai staff chop down the banana trees with machetes and we carry them to the trucks. Each day we chop them up to give to the elephants. I love seeing the elephants simply step on the thick terrestrial to break them open and eat the core, taking incredible strength! Pineapple tops aren’t as heavy, but the spines will get you

Harvest is hard work but makes the day go by fast.
