In an earlier post about rock textures and patterns at Tenby in South Wales I said that some rock surfaces reminded me of elephant hide. So, shown above are a few photographs that I took of the elephant skin on a prepared specimen exhibited at the Natural History Museum in London to show you what I meant – while below are a couple of examples of the textured limestone from Tenby for comparison.

Amazingly similar! Good spot.
I was pleased to take some pictures to substantiate my earlier description.
