Digital Calendar photo description

Chobe River Crossing

Early afternoon while cruising on the Zambezi Queen houseboat on the Chobe River, Botswana, a herd of Elephants crossed the Chobe River and approached the houseboat to within a few metres before turning to the left and moving on to a sand bank

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-likeprojections 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.
