Digital Calendar photo description

Golden Sunset Shower-bath

Late afternoon in the far northern Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga, these two Elephants were frolickingin the Pafuri River. Suddenly, one of the Elephants filled its trunk with water and blew a spray of droplets over the other Elephant. The droplets appeared tobe golden in colour as the setting sun reflected off them.

Elephant  -  Loxodonta africana

The largest land animal, Africa's true King of Beasts, weighs up to 6000kg (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 the backsurface. Tusks grow continuously, weigh up to 130 kg each

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