Telling Your Kids What Elephants Used To Look Like

“Come back, come back! Come back to us, you great, dead creatures of the earth.”

Which animals captured your imagination as a kid? Who was plush — a bear, a cow, a pig or bunny? (For me: yes, yes, yes, and yes.) Who was plastic? (A Brontosaurus, a.k.a longneck, for you Land Before Time fans.)

Which animal did you see at the zoo, or in a forest, that would break your heart to describe to a child this way: “No, those don’t exist anymore.”
