Sharing a thirst quenching drink

Late afternoon on the Botswana bank of the Chobe River, this herd of Elephants came down to the river to enjoy a long drink of water. The herd was particularly protective of the tine baby elephant who followed the herd, using his tiny truck to suck up water and deposit it down his throat.

Elephant Loxodonta africana

The largest land animal, Africa’s true King of Beasts, weighs up to 6000 kg (male) and 3500 kg (female), height 3.3 m (male) and 2.5 m (female). The trunk is a muscular extension of the upper lip containing the nostrils, and the tip is equipped with two finger-like projections for handling small objects. Huge ears, up to 1.5 m. Flapping ears on still, hot days helps cool blood flowing through network of veins on back surface. Tusks grow continuously, weighing up to 13 kg each and can reach a length of 2.5 m.
