Agree ako dun :D, dati kasi mabilisan din akong magdrawing... nakita ko kasi yung highschool student sa tindi ng detail at ask ko siya sa time duration nya..he said "1 month" wow talaga sa tiyaga pero pamatay ang resulta niya.

No, but they should be.

They could be the next cow! And then Ivory Poaching would die out. p: The best way to save an animal, is to depend on it.
