Caption: African elephant. 19th-century illustration of two African bush elephants (Loxodonta africana) in southern Africa, with a hunter on horseback between them. The elephant in the foreground is using its trunk to spray water. African elephants are the largest and heaviest land animals. This illustration is by British artist Thomas Baines (1820-1875). Baines documented the scenery, flora and fauna of southern Africa from 1857 to 1864. In 1858 and 1859 he travelled with British explorer David Livingstone on his expedition along the Zambezi River. Baines then travelled with explorer James Chapman in south-western Africa from 1861 to 1863.
