Adolescent Floppy Running

Print Description

In Amboseli, the elephants are frightened of the Maasai people who live around the boundaries of the park.  They frequently come into conflict, particularly during the dry season when the Maasai bring their cattle to the same water holes the animals use.  This adolescent elephant has caught the scent of Maasai and is running.  However when it realised it was not in danger after all, the run changed into a floppy,  playful run.
