African Elephant, Loxodonta Africana. Amboseli National Park, Kenya, East Africa. A large bull African Elephant crossing the plain as he follows behind a huge herd of female and juvenile elephants.
Elephants spend most of their time eating. Elephants must have access to water and enjoy spending time washing, playing and cooling off. African Elephants are classified as endangered. They are victims of large-scale poaching and habitat loss due to rapid human expansion.
