Elephants' feet are covered in a soft padding that helps uphold their weight, prevent them from slipping, and dull any sound.
"To succeed, you need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you, something to inspire you." ~ Tony Dorsett
Elephants can walk almost silently!
Did you know that the tip of the trunk of an African elephant has two "fingers", whereas the Asian elephant only has one? This enables the African elephant to grip and pick up objects, whereas the Asian elephant can only scoop with its entire trunk.
"The past becomes a texture, an ambience to our present." ~ Paul Scott

"So I guess you're wondering why I called you here?" A group gathering of Camp Jabulani's younger herd members.
Camp Jabulani's calves, Limpopo and Zindoga, hard at play.
Pisa is once again excluded from the other calves' playtime. So like a human child's experiences.
