When we went to Kenya in 2005, we sponsored an elephant baby at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
Zurura was a bit over one year old when we visited him.
That little boy sure loved the mud!
Ten years later... that hasn't changed!
(That's him laying in the mud/water!)
The elephant sure has changed tho.
He's now considered a "former" orphan and has grown into a magnificent young bull.
He is living free in Tsavo National Park in the SE of Kenya.
A success story!
