African Elephant
Loxodonta africana

Elephants are always associated with permanent water and abundant vegetation( an exception to this is the desert elephant from Namibia, who adapted to survive in the harsh conditions of the area). Because elephants do not have sweat glands, water plays an important roll in helping them cool down.

The picture on the old bull on the left was taken on the banks of the Shingwedzi River in the Kruger National Park
