Caption: African elephants (Loxodonta africana) covered in mud. A layer of mud stops the elephant's skin drying out as well as killing skin parasites. Elephants are social herbivores that inhabit the savannah and forests of sub-Saharan Africa. They live in large family herds that are ruled by an elderly matriarch. They are the largest living land animal, and adult males can weight up to 7000 kilograms. Photographed at the Kennedy 1 Waterhole, Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe.
