It's called elephant grass for a reason! 😄 This huge, majestic female tusker only popped up occasionally in the tall elephant grass fields of the Terai belt in the foothills of Himalaya. You can imagine how massive this 10 feet tall grass is. . 📷 Nikon D7000 + Tamron 150-600mm 📍 Rajaji National Park, Uttarakhand 🔧 F6.3, 150mm, 1/800s, ISO 160 . #nature #huge #wild #wildlife_inspired #naturephotograpy #naturelover #wildlife #wildlifeofinstagram #wildlife_photography #naturephotography #safarilife #discoverwildlife #grassland #elephantlover #wildlifeindia #animalplanet #wildlifesafari #grass #elephants #naturegood #wildgame #safari #animalove #animal #wildlifeonearth #elephant #wildlifephotography #nature_perfection #animalovers

Once upon a time I went to Thailand (which you prob know bc it's all I've talked about this week on here), and alongside partaking in cheap beer, shopping in night markets, and laying about on beaches, I researched ethical elephant sanctuaries; it sounded like a marvellous way to spend a day. After hearing great things, I settled on Patara, north of Chiang Mai, a farm that rescued elephants from logging and tourism (the kind where they are chained up on the street and have platforms put on their backs to cart people around on). There, everyone was given an elephant to care for that day: mine was a wee beastie named Petal (her name was in Thai, but I can't recall the word) who was the largest elephant at the farm at that time. She was something like 4 tonnes? Maybe 3? She was a giant. 🐘 I learned about how to approach her, how to feed her, bathe her even. At one point we stood in dubious water, and dumped buckets of the stuff on our elephants. To be honest, I didn't love every aspect of the day (they tried to get me to ride her bareback but I wasn't having it and asked to come down) but I remember feeling really content at the end of it. That I'd done something new and challenging, and ... well, I miss that version of me. 🐘 This is a promise to myself that I will look for opportunities to bring this kind of adventurous energy back into my life. 🐘 #latergram #wanderlust #instatravel #elephants #ephelants #thailand 🇹🇭 #dreamingofbetterdays #solotravel

As Chamilandu and the calf headed out on their first walk together into the bush, it was time for release phase elephant Tafika to meet the new addition. Tafika has been closely bonded to Chamilandu for the past 10 years, since his rescue at 9 months old.⁣ ⁣ Lisa Olivier, Head of Research narrates their first encounter:-⁣ ⁣ “In Video 1, we see Tafika approaching the calf with much more confidence than Rufunsa exhibited the previous day! He smells the calf (a key way that elephants identify each other) and is relaxed as the calf approaches him...until he tries to suckle Tafika’s leg! Tafika displays some nervous behaviours (twisting his trunk up to his mouth) while being very alert (ears out) before rushing away with the calf following him!⁣ ⁣ Minutes later, in Video 2, we see the calf enthusiastically approaching Tafika, and trying to touch his face. Again the older bull displays some very nervous and alert behaviours. ⁣ ⁣ It is important to remember that none of these elephants were old enough at time of rescue to experience or remember a calf being born, and how it behaved. While they are used to meeting the graduates from the nursery, those elephants are not so young, and tend to display ‘elephant etiquette’ (performing submissive behaviours) to older elephants. They are not be used to such a confident young elephant boldly trying to touch them! However, they will quickly get used to this new addition to their orphan herd, and will be all the more confident the next time it happens!”⁣ ⁣ #WeAreAllRangers #GRIWildlifeRescue #elephantorphange #wildborn #dnpw #dswf #olsenanimaltrust #ifaw #zambia #africa #elephants #saveelephants #dontletthemdisappear ⁣ ⁣

If you love elephants I would highly recommend you read or listen to “The Elephant whisperer” by Lawrence Anthony. Very interesting indeed and made time fly by while I was listening to it in the combine. #elephants #elephantwhisperer #elephantsofinstagram

Elephants are fascinating creatures if you just take a step back and think about it. I mean, after watching giraffes struggle to bend down to drink from a watering hole, how cool is it that elephants have built in straws to make their life easier!!

❌ PSA: Elephants don't belong in circuses ❌ Neither do lions, tiger, bears, or ANY wild animal. California Governor @gavinnewsom currently has a bill on his desk (SB 313) that would prohibit the use of wild animals in circus performance and end their suffering. CA SUPPORTERS: Please contact Gov. Newsom NOW and urge him to sign SB 313 and be an advocate for animals. #LinkInBio . . . #california #worldanimalprotection #protectanimals #animalprotection #animalwelfare #animal #animals #animallover #animallovers #animalsofinstagram #animallove #animalcruelty #stopanimalcruelty #elephant #elephants #circus #circusanimals

These older orphans sure love their milk. At Umani Springs they receive them around 3 times a day. Most are a bit older than they would be in the wild and still drinking milk, but because they aren't receiving actual elephant milk they like to allow them to continue having it for the extra nutrients. .....

Gli elefanti sono al vertice della catena alimentare, da adulti non temono nessun predatore. Da cuccioli sono estremamente fragili e necessitano della protezione della mamma e del branco, per muovere i primi passi nella savana. Questo piccolo elefantino era inizialmente intimorito dalla nostra presenza, per poi prendere coraggio e "venirci a salutare" #elefanti #elephant 🐘 #elephants #elephant #krugernationalpark #southafrica #natgeoitalia #natgeoyourshot #nationalgeographic #nature_photo #naturelovers #nature_perfection #wildanimals #wildlifephotography #wildplanet #wildnature #wildlife_shots #animalphotography #nikond610 #nikonitalia #nikonphotography #ig_italy #yallersitalia #animals #travelphotography #travel #travelgram #savana #nikon

🐘 An elephant and 🐕 a dog became pregnant at same time. Three months down the line the dog gave birth to six puppies. Six months later the dog was pregnant again, and nine months on it gave birth to another dozen puppies. The pattern continued. On the eighteenth month the dog approached the elephant questioning, _"Are you sure that you are pregnant? We became pregnant on the same date, I have given birth three times to a dozen puppies and they are now grown to become big dogs, yet you are still pregnant. Whats going on?". The elephant replied, _"There is something I want you to understand. What I am carrying is not a puppy but an elephant. I only give birth to one in two years. When my baby hits the ground, the earth feels it. When my baby crosses the road, human beings stop and watch in admiration, what I carry draws attention. So what I'm carrying is mighty and great.". Don't lose faith when you see others achieving their success. Don't be envious of others results. If you haven't received your success, don't despair. Say to yourself "My time is coming, and when it hits the surface of the earth, people shall yield in admiration. 👑 - - - - #dreams #goals #takestime #vision #faith #patience #spirit #belief #life #10x #dream #realty #cashflow #invest #own #land #business #mindyourbusiness #stayinyourlane #positive #staystrong #share #instagram #insta #elephants #hashtag #live
