Elephant by Suzi Eszterhas, Steve Parker

Follow one newborn elephant calf from his birth on the African grasslands to adulthood, photographed close-up in the wild by award-winning photographer Suzie Eszterhas. See the calf learning to use his trunks and tusks, playing in the waterholes and meeting other young elephants. At last, when he is fifteen years old, the elephant is ready to leave the herd and explore the African plains by himself.
