A Bush Elephant

Where the bush ends is where the elephant begins? Or is it the other way round? The African Bush Elephant, also known as the African Savanna Elephant, prefers open savannas, forests and deserts as habitats. This endangered pachyderm is the largest living terrestrial animal, and is found in 23 countries, with the southern and eastern parts of Africa housing the largest populations globally.
