Amboseli_elephant_protective_mom

Amboseli Park, Kenya

February 24, 2007

Yo momma! The elephant mothers are very protective of their kids. We had split into guy and girl Land Rovers this morning, and the girls got remarkably close to a group of elephants - females, babies and young males. When the guys approached, the alpha female got spooked, positioned between us and her kids, and steered the brood clear. Too much testosterone! Hatari!
