An elephant with a very large itch to scratch

Amboseli National Park, Kenya, September 24, 2017--A herd of about 14 elephants were passing by a very large termite mound. This adult spotted it, and decided it would make for an excellent scratching post. I was completely amazed by the structural integrity of the termite mound!
