Up to no good!

Up to no good!

“That’s what my mama says when she sees me grinning.”

“But hey, these adults are so boring. They move slowly and they just stagnate in places for a long time. I mean, where’s the fun in just eating all day? I get it, we’re majestic Sri Lankan Elephants and we need to eat a lot, but dude, there’s more to life than that! But all is not lost. I just heard that there is a migration in the offing because our herd shuffles between Gal Oya National Park, which is where we are now, and Yala National Park. So the journey should be a lot of fun! Right, I think it's time now for a glorious mud bath and dust shower. It’s a lot of fun to do and it keeps the annoying parasites away!”

Fun Facts

“The Senanayake Samudra lake in Gal Oya National Park, is just littered with islands to explore and they’re all calling out my name. Getting to them is easy, just jump in the water, stick the trunk up in the air and swim away. My mum and the other adults do it all the time, but I’m not allowed to because mum says I’m too small. It’s the only time I feel like I want to grow up.”

Story of the photo

Photographer Gavin Sahabandu, a traveller and a wildlife photographer, took this cute picture of a mischievous-looking baby elephant at Gal Oya National Park, not too far from the Explorer by Mahoora campsite.
