Elephant close-ups

Just a couple of close-up shots of elephants taken last weekend at Addo Elephant Back Safaris.

Elephant skin taken with the macro setting of my camera. *skin cream needed*
The bottom of an elephant’s foot. It is amazing to watch them walk. They put their feet down flat and not heal and toe like us. The feet has a kind of a cushion in it which absorbs the impact when they walk which means they are very delicate walkers. *heal balm needed*

The hair at the end of an elephant’s tail. Those hair is very coarse and I have seen curio shops selling bracelets made of several tail hair woven together. *conditioner needed*
