Safari Sunday: A silly baby elephant

Posted by barb on Apr 16, 2017 in Pictures, Recreation, Travels |

At Chobe, the groups of elephants that we saw were all family groups with a matriarch, related adult females, and young of a range of ages.
This little one was the youngest in the group of elephants we saw on our game drive on our last morning at Chobe – essentially our drive to the airport with a several hour detour through the park.

He was quite a cutie.

Fun fact – baby elephant’s trunks don’t work for sucking up things until they are about 6 months old. When they visit the water, they’ll imitate the adults, but you’ll see the babies go all the way in up to their mouths so they can drink.
