Ahhhhh - refreshing dust bath

Elephants spray each other with dust to deter bugs and to keep cool. They were blowing around a LOT of dust when I was watching them! The elephant exhibit is the newest major expansion of the Reid Park Zoo. The zoo even has an elephant web cam so if you are crazy about elephants, be sure to tune in!

  1. It looks like he's having FUN!

  2. Great photo! "Clean" doesn't meant the same thing to everybody!!

  3. P.S. Thanks for the webcam site...I've bookmarked it to watch regularly for glimpses of this wonderful new herd. I'm so happy that Reid Park Zoo is growing into such a sophisticated place :-)
