... of elephants, and we quickly came upon a group of about 12. They had been in the swamp, and were wet from mid-elephant down. The elephant groups are all females, sometimes accompanied by an adult male. The matriarch determines what the group will do at any given moment; they wait for her move and follow.

Two younger ones had a bitter fight while the larger bull sidled up to the lady in estrus. He was dripping in musk. I am certain in the end he won but we don't really now.
