Coloured African Elephants at pump-pan Savuti Botswana  ; Differently coloured elephants (Loxodonta africana) drinking at pump-pan at Savuti in Botswana. Being the only available surface water in this dry region the pan draws a huge number of elephants to quench their thirst. Besides drinking they also need to cool and spaying themselves washes off all the saline dust which coats them with a whitish cloak
