Wild animal greatest wits in nature along the African Savannah
African Elephants and the River Nile crocodiles have co existed in the rich Savannah grass lands of the African continent. Both these animals have long history of being on the top in terms of hunting for their tusks as far as the elephant is concerned while the Nile crocodile and the rest of the species have been a delicacy to and a source of food for those living around the swamps, lakes and navigable rivers of the continent. Their products have ended up into the world's unending lucrative markets while the supply keeps on changing with the global and policies due to the love of such wild animals. Although there is little data about the African elephants and the African crocodiles fatalities and information about their numbers, deforestation, land encroachment and loss of habitat has paved way for such animal species to be endangered by humans
Nile crocodile was subdued by the baby elephant was just the old animal instinctive trick which has been grind over and over into our complex brain unknowingly. The baby elephant poked its baby trunk with its two finger like structures at the tip and with that simple manoeuvre, the mother elephant was able to move for safety bellowing and perambulating with a cloud of water showering the ground after being denied the fundamental right of breathing. People like to share good stories and good animal pictures but the bottom line is we should all share information educate and communicate with one another in keeping these wild animals alive. For all the tourist and nature loving people, animals can stop to be endangered if we only stop buying items in the local shops. If the buying stops the poaching decreases hence the preservation of more wild and rare species.
