A young African elephant (Loxodonta africana) calf taking a dust bath with members of the herd. Dust provides a protective layer to shield their body from the sun's rays and it is also relief them from insect bites. African elephants are herbivores and are the world's largest and heaviest land animals. Adult females and their young live in large social groups, whereas males lead largely solitary lives. Filmed at Chudop waterhole, Etosha National Park, Namibia.
