Usually that doesn’t help my […]

That’s what you will find at Tuckerbox in downtown White River Junction. Finally, food that is unheard of in this area.

TIL African elephants can distinguish human languages, genders and ages associated with danger.

Elephants are amazing. I only wish they could see, hear and smell a poacher from 10 miles away. But, they are able to listen to languages spoken nearby and know if it is coming from a possible threat. http://www.nature.com/news/elephants-recognize-the-voices-of-their-enemies-1.14846
