Caption

High-speed footage of the trunk and feet of an African elephant (Loxodonta africana) drinking at a waterhole. The trunk of the elephant is often called nature's most versatile appendage. The clip shows the construction of the feet of an elephant and more specifically the specialized foot morphology which has evolved to help reduce locomotor pressures while supporting their large body mass. 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 the Moringa waterhole adjacent to Halali restcamp, in Etosha National Park, Namibia.
