Kicking up some dust

Elephants use dirt as sunscreen. … When coming out of a bath in a river, elephants will often throw mud on themselves as a layer of protection. And when calves are sleeping, adults will often stand over them to cast shade and protect them from the sun. Every day we would see the elephants kick the ground to loosen the dirt and then use their trunks to throw dirt over themselves.


I'd love to hear from you
