THE AFRICAN ELEPHANT – Loxodonta Africana
Location captured: “The Kruger National Park”, South Africa.
Elephants have a highly developed social structure and family units are led by a cow elephant or matriarch. The matriarch is, by natural selection, the most experienced member of the group and automatically assumes leadership. The composition of the herd varies and one will find bulls of various ages in attendance. A bull may be distinguished from a cow by its rounded forehead; the cow’s forehead is angular. Both have tusks. Bulls leave the family unit at puberty (10 -12 years) and, in many instances, are driven out by the older cows.

SADDLE-BILLED STORK – Ephippiorhynchus senegalensis

Uncommon resident. A large, strikingly colored stork unlikely to be confused with any other either at rest or in flight.
Immature has grey instead of black markings, the white areas mottled with black, bill dull, blackish.
Singly or in pairs in the shallows or large rivers, lakes, dams, floodplains and marshes.
145 cm.

ENDANGERED
