  2. Great behavioral shots, thanks for sharing. Were they competing for a water hole? I remember seeing a documentary where during the day, the elephants could easily fend of and even attack the lions, but the roles being reversed after sunset. Posted 3 years ago
  3. No the young Elephant was being agresive towards the lions with cubs. The lions began the chase and they disappeared into thick bush. Only cries from the elephant could be heard. There was a BBC crew filming but I am not sure for what reason. Posted 3 years ago, modified 3 years ago

The African bush elephant is the larger of the two species of African elephant. Both it and the African forest elephant have usually been classified as a single species, known simply as the African elephant, but recent evidence has seen the forest elephant classified as a distinct species . Some authorities still consider the currently available evidence as insufficient for splitting African elephants into two species.
