Testosterone does not reason

We watched a herd of ellies coming down to the Sweni river from the Sweni Hide in Kruger NP. It was not long before the whole lot were in the water bathing, snorkelling, etc. Mom, the Matriarch, later got out and stood waiting for the herd to finish. When she had given everyone ample time to finish, she gently led them from the river. However, Mr Teenager, stayed behind in the water, trumpeting his frustration. He was NOT going to leave. He was swimming, it was hot and the water was nice! He then finally left the water and proceeded walking up and down on the edge of the river, slapping his trunk, stomping his feet and tossing his head in a typical tantrum display. That the picture below. Then he approach his slightly larger cousin, and this is him being pushed to the left. ~ D3OO #1 31467W
