Description

While on game drive in Etosha National Park, in Namibia, we spotted this herd of desert elephants on their life journey for water.

The tusks of elephants in Etosha which are actually two upper front teeth do not attain significant lengths mostly attributable to mineral deficiency. Another reason is that elephants use the tasks for digging up a roots and breaking the tips of tasks in process.

The Etosha elephants are regarded as tallest in Africa. To regulate the body temperature they often use stomach water spraying it over the body or using large ears as radiators continually flopping them. Elephants have only four molars in use at a time. As these are worn down they get replaced by new ones. Elephants can be destructive around waterholes and the surrounding areas can be severely damaged and deforested.

Desert-dwelling elephants in the north-western part of Namibia are special for several reasons. They are one group of only two known populations of desert-dwelling elephants in the world. The other group is in Mali. They are uniquely adopted to extremely dry and sandy conditions – they have a smaller bodies and larger feet than other elephants. By the 1980′s most of 3000 elephants that lived in Namibia’s Kunene Region were killed by hunters and poachers. Because of measures that were taken to protect desert elephants their population is approximately 600 at the moment.

Their diet is varied and changes from wet to dry seasons. Most popular species include Commiphora, Mopane tree, Ana tree.
