How Elephants Spread Eggplant Across A Continent

!!Description

For years, scientists have struggled to explain how the humble eggplant spread across the continent of Africa and subsequently moved up into Europe. Unlike other crops throughout history, there wasn’t a clear or obvious trade path it could’ve taken to travel the distances and the zany routes that it accomplished. This week, a new study in Science Daily was published with a pretty convincing hypothesis.

Can you take a guess?

It's all about the elephants. (And the impalas, too!)
