the elephants were in great health, and they seemed very happy. however, there was concern that their habitat was too small for them, so they decided to do the right thing and move them to an elephant sanctuary out west somewhere. and no the elephant isn't sick... he's just taking a dust bath :)

So he was hurt? Or just because they didn't think the zoo atmosphere was suiting him?

I like the kind of monotone result you got from this photo, really interesting.

the exibit wasn't big enough for the elephants they had. so they decided to relocate them where they'd have open space. the elephants seemed really happy at the zoo, but the caretakers wanted more for them.

that shows that the caretakers really care, that is an excellent thing! Good shot, too!
