It’s that time of year in Samburu National Reserve! With so many elephant families in the park thanks to the rains and abundance of vegetation, pickings are good for musth bulls looking for females in estrus. In this short film captured by our monitoring team, we see Archimedes having his way with a young female from the Butterflies family. Shortly afterwards, the Butterflies family gathered around the young female trumpeting loudly. We hope to see a new bouncing baby elephant in this herd in the next 22 months!
