THE MORNING POST – TREE ICE CREAM

Elephants love to eat the inside layer of the bark of trees. This is the ‘transport system’ which trees use to move nutrients and water from the roots to the branches and leaves. Judging by the gusto Ellies enjoy the phloem (transport layer) it must be as desirable to Elephants as ice cream is to me ๐Ÿ˜Š

Have a good Sunday!

THE MORNING POST – ELEPHANT PARADE

This is my favorite Thanda Safari Elephant video clip which I took a while ago. I am not sure if I ever shared it with you. Well, here it is (maybe again ๐Ÿ˜Š).

THE EVENING POST – LONG NOSES

This morning I asked of which animal I took the detail pictures in the collage. The correct answer is an Elephant. And the details are: Ivory Tusk, Toe Nail, Foot Sole and Tail Hair.

Have a good evening ๐Ÿ˜Š

THE EVENING POST – TRUMPETS AND GROWLS

I had an excellent evening drive. First I spent an hour in between a breeding herd of Elephants feeding all around me and then I experienced some Lion tension between two brothers. One of them was attending to a female in estrous while keeping her away from his submissive rival. A lot of growling and paw-fighting. A not so quiet Sunday ๐Ÿ˜Š!

Have a good week.

THE EVENING POST – A BIT OF A SWAGGER

At the end of today’s game drive I took this short video of an Elephant bull following a breeding herd. Like a teenager he walked confidently down the road with a bit of a swagger before turning into the tree-line.

Have a good Sunday!
