The elephants' island

Whoever had the good fortune to witness this sight that gave Tilos the name "island with the almond trees" never forgot it. In the place of this vision though came something eise, just as distinctive and magnificent: the islands pygmy elephants whose study wiIl show as we expect by faithfully reconstructing their skeletons showing how these animaIs were in that time. This spectacle, unique for being in Greece but aiso one of the most remarkable in the world and connected to that great paleontological discovery that brought to Iight these important finds, wiIl justly give a new name to Tilos, making now the island better known as the Elephant Island.
