Conserve Water – Shower with an Elephant!

It’s always a great idea to save water. The precious resource is limited, and earth’s population continues to grow. Luckily there are so many ways to conserve H20 – from fixing leaky faucets to throwing errant ice cubes into houseplants instead of down the drain. Or, you could take a cue from an elephant and bathe in dirt instead of water! Elephants take what are known as “dust baths”.  They and other animals cover themselves in dry dirt as a protection against biting insects and the sun’s heat. Elephants use their trunks as a hose and shower head to propel the dust all over their bodies. In this video highlight from Mpala in Kenya a bathing beauty showers in front of an audience of many, including Kudu and a Monkey. Who else can you spot?
