Caption: Elephant eye and skin. Close up of the eye of an African elephant (Loxodonta africana). The long eyelashes are to protect the eyes from dust and insects. The elephant's thick, hard skin is wrinkled to provide a large surface area that helps to keep it cool. African elephants are the world's largest land animal, weighing up to 10,000 kilograms and measuring 3.5 metres in height. Photographed in the Samburu reserve, Kenya.
