The Elephant Herd Enjoys Swimming and Wallowing in the Rain

Monsoon Season Might Be the Elephants’ Favorite!

All this wet weather makes for lots of fresh mud and perfect swimming and wallowing opportunities. Mabu and Nandi decided to go for a swim together during a recent soft rain, and then the entire herd enjoyed some fresh mud! Elephants wallow in mud to keep cool and protect their skin from sun and insects.
