Caption: African elephant family at a mud bath, with a young calf at lower centre. African elephants (Loxodonta africana) are herbivores and are the world's largest and heaviest land animals. A layer of mud stops the elephant's skin drying out as well as killing skin parasites. Adult females and their young live in large social groups; males lead largely solitary lives. Photographed in the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania.
