    While he stands knee deep in the waterhole his eyes are closed as he dozes off. Now and again this giant will swish his tail or fill his trunk to spray his massive frame with the cool grey liquid. He is big - 4 meters tall and over 4 ton in weight, he is the "Godfather" as I affectionately call this giant elephant. It‚s two in the afternoon and the heat is relentless; over 30 degrees Celsius and no shade.

Is this elephant still alive or has she been killed for her ivory? If she is dead, where is the little baby? Stop elephant poaching.

African elephants are the elephants of the genus Loxodonta, consisting of two extant species: the African bush elephant and the smaller African forest elephant. Loxodonta is one of the two existing genera in the family Elephantidae.

Such an amazing, intelligent, caring, social creature. Please don't visit the circus or buy ivory. These animals deserve so much better
