Digital Calendar photo description

Evening Stroll

 

Early evening at the Pafuri bridge in the far northern region of the Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga,

this large Elephant strolled across the river as the golden rays of the setting sun bathed

the river water in a golden glow.

 

Elephant  -  Loxodonta africana

 

The largest land animal, Africa's true King of Beasts, weighs up to 6 000 kg (male) and 3 500 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.
