A Mud Bath at Sosian!

After having had some lovely rain on Sosian Ranch following a long dry season, Sean Outram, the General Manager, came across this big bull elephant determined to make the most of the water and mud that was now around.

After churning up a natural waterhole with his feet to get the mud to the right consistency he then spent the next ten minutes rolling, sitting and rubbing all while letting out trumpets of glee!

Finally he was well covered in thick red mud and he moved off into the bushes to continue his day!
