a rare sighting...
i've just received these extraordinary photos of an african elephant in the sea
it doesnt seemed stressed out or that much bothered comming from the deep through the small waves
is there somewhere in africa an island near the coast where elephants make such a crossing?
[maybe there was a big storm,but still...]
can anyone give me some information on this unusual sighting?
or is it a huge lake and not the sea at all,as it seems to drink the water in the last photograph.
is it just cooling off or what?

Remarkable images have emerged from Mozambique of an elephant swimming in the sea off bay of Nuarro, on the north coast
Bizarre images of an African elephant swimming, playing, washing and drinking in the sea have emerged from an eco-tourism lodge in Mozambique.
An incredibly rare sight elephants love water and hosing themselves down but it is highly unusual to see them in the sea.
Chris McIntyre from Expert Africa said: phenomenally unusual in southern or East Africa for an elephant to be in the ocean. I've never seen this, and very, very rarely heard of it!
The elephant was spotted off the coast in the bay of Nuarro, home to the Nuarro Mozambique eco-lodge. Trienke Lodewijk from the Nuarro Lodge said, can you believe this, in our bay! It is so incredible. We couldn't believe it when we spotted him.
Scientists think elephants don't naturally like sea water but can't place a specific reason on why.

Guess he decided against the whole migrating to the US thing... Probably sounded like a good idea at the time, and that's why Elephants shouldn't drink Scotch!!"That which does not kill us makes us stronger" Friedrich Nietzsche
