2009 Digital Calendar photo description 

"Giant Tusker" 

Early morning in the Tembe Elephant Park, KwaZulu-Natal, this old Elephant Bull came down to

the dam to drink. As he was strolling along, two small ducks took to the water and

glided gracefully past the old Elephant.


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, tip equipped with two fingerlike 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, weigh up to 130 kg each

and can reach a length of about 2,5 m.
