THE GENTLE GAINTS....!!!
Asian Elephants are the largest mammals of the Subcontinent... They are as tall as 12ft and weigh more than 3-4 tonns...They are extremely family bound mammals...They young ones are really protected and taken care off...They even mourn the loss of the family members.
I witnessed several heards and Lonely tuskers in my recent trip to Kabini Wildlife Sanctuary...which is their natural habitat.
Karnataka, Kerala, and Tamil nadu boast of very good conservation of these Gaints.
They are truly amazing Mammals to watch...Here are some Pic. of them ...Some more will follow..
