Caption: Herd of African elephants (Loxodonta africana) playing in the Chudop waterhole in Etosha National Park, Namibia, Southern Africa. Bathing is often a social or bonding activity which helps remove parasites from the elephants' skin and it helps with rehydration and thermoregulation. Family herds are made up of several females and their young, led by an old matriarch.
