Great White Grid


Great White Ghost, Etosha National Park, Namibia

Elephants in Etosha National Park, Namibia, use a mixture of white clay mud and calcite sand to cool their skin. Because the mud dries white, they are often called “white ghosts.” This aging bull elephant was using a dead tree as a back scratcher. His grey skin had begun to show through the mud.
