Baby might be thinking:

Isn’t it rich?
Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground,

Wait, when do we get to see these? That would be exciting. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:MammothNovel.jpg

Also, a mention of passenger pigeons? They used to be really numerous. This also featured in one of my favorite works of fiction. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1006354.Wildside

This is super cool.

If you like this, do a little looking into what the good DVMs in San Diego are doing about rhinos.
