The Eland is the world’s largest antelope. Males have twisted horns which are thick and tightly spiralled, growing up to 25″ in females and to 50″ in males. Eland belong to the same group as kudus, nyala and bushbuck. According to the AWF, their rich milk, tasty meat, and useful hides have made elands popular ranch animals and hunting targets.

Vervet monkeys are gregarious animals living in organised troops which are dominated by males. Their access to food resources is regulated by the hierarchy of dominance. Females stay with their natal group, whereas males leave the group when they reach puberty. The diet of the vervet monkey is omnivorous, feeding on fruits, flowers and leaves as well as insects. It can differentiate between green and ripe fruit, as primates are one of few mammals with colour vision.

Rolling around in the mud is, however, more than just fun for elephants. Mud baths serve a critical purpose for elephants. Under the harsh African sun, the heat and UV radiation can be deadly and with their few hair and sweat glands they have to find other ways to cool off. Romping around in mud not only cools them down but provides a protective layer to shield their body from the sun’s rays and it is also relief them from insect bites.
