"Elephants and trees…" Addo Elephant National Park Favorite Tip by Jenniflower

Favorite thing: Elephants are prolific in their destruction of trees, they pull them down and eat the vegetation off of them, with scant regard for the destructive manner in which they do so.

It makes tracking them VERY easy, you just need to look for torn roots and shoots to know where they have passed by.

The trunk may look clumsy but it is anything but!

It has two little finger-type things at the end of its trunk, which act like fingers, and are quite nimble. This enables the trunk to pick up a small berry off the ground, or clasp a thin leaf in its trunk.

Pretty amazing :)
