As dusk approached, we came upon a group of African Elephants (Loxodonta africana) passing from right to left in front of our Land Rover. Most proceeded into the trees, but one bull clearly had an attitude problem. After the rest of the family had disappeared into the bushes, he turned and looked at us head-on. Clearly, having lost one tusk in an earlier dispute, he was not averse to violence. Fortunately, he settled for a intimidating glare as opposed to an obliterating charge.
