The elephant bull and marula tree

Posted on Mar 29, 2018

We watched this elephant bull journey across the veld until he reached a tall tree, it was only after he used his trunk to shake the tree (which I did not get on camera) in the hopes of getting its fruit to drop, that I realised he had come to eat the marula fruit it produces. Most of the marulas are depleted of their fruit because it is now the end of summer. He then spent time searching for what fruits he could in the grass below the tree.
