Interesting Animal - Elephants

Farmers in Botswana are using chilli peppers to keep elephants at bay.

(The chillies, planted around the perimeter of the crop, act as a buffer. The idea being that when an elephant wanders in, the smell of the chillies crushed under its feet will drive it away. Of course if they develop a taste for curry, there could be a problem.)
