Anette-Mossbacher-Profile-PicAfrican elephant fight. A sequence of two African elephant bulls fighting in the desert of Etosha National Park in Namibia. The African elephant bulls pushing each other, hitting their heads and tusks together. In the action lots of dust gets whirled up lots of dust from the ground. "When two African elephants bullfight the grass gets hurt" an African proverb. With these two African elephants square up only the dust gets beaten.
The African elephant (Loxodonta africana) is the largest living land mammal. A African elephant can reach about 4 meters up to it's shoulders and weight can be about ten tones. The elephants skull is very large to support the tusks, trunk and jaws. The trunk contains more than 100.000 muscles. It is used for trumpeting, drinking, smelling, touching and grabbing food. With it's two fingerlike lips at the end the African elephant is also able to grab smaller things. African elephant bulls fight with each other over females. Females eventually will take the stronger elephant male.
