He loves to throw dirt UP on his back!!

Serengeti- Tanzania

Elephants have sensitive skin that can get sunburned. To protect from the damaging sun rays they throw sand or dirt UP on their bodies. That is something we should do !!


  1. I really like this one and it certainly made me smile, which is always good. Thanks. 🙂 During a recent walk I saw a bird that was hunting in the dirt for food of some sort. It would raise a mini-dust storm with its foot and then peck. Quite funny.
