Quotes from the news wire:
This study potentially establishes a link between a human pathological condition and the skin of African elephants, strikingly, we show strong similarities between the normal skin morphology of African elephants and that of humans affected by' ichthyosis vulgaris,' a common genetic disorder affecting about 1 in 250 people that is known to impact shedding of the skin and cause dry, scaly skin.
We would like to follow the cracking on the skin of a baby African elephant to understand the dynamic of the process, are the cracks appearing everywhere or do they appear in a specific place and then propagate ? Does it take... weeks or does it take six months ? It's a new, beautiful example of how physical processes are involved in the development of animal forms and shapes.
