Caught Napping


Caught Napping_2016_10_12_0874

Elephants (Loxondonta africana) take frequent naps, but most often on four legs. They actually sleep for a remarkably short time in the wild, some say two to three hours a day, and only sleep lying down once in every three to four days. We stumbled upon this pachyderm, fast asleep in the prone position.
