After getting some much needed rain at Sosian Ranch in Laikipia Country in Kenya, I came across this big bull elephant who was determined to make the most of the recent water supply by turning a small dam of water into his personal deluxe mud bath.
After churning up a rather small natural waterhole with his feet, he managed to build up a good consistency of mud. He then spent the next 10 minutes rolling, sitting, and splashing around in a puddle-sized patch of mud.
The massive bull even trumpeted with glee as he continued his spa treatment, giving up all manliness and composure. Finally he was well covered in thick red mud and he moved off into the bushes to continue his day.
