I have had several encounters with African elephant bulls over the years and it is always an interesting experience. One is never entirely certain exactly how a bull will respond when he learns you are in the neighbourhood. Like us it seems to depend largely on what his essential nature is but also what kind of day he has had. Should he have had a tough day it's probably best to give him a wide birth. This younger bull is showing me he is big but he is happily not in a bad mood.
