Description

1st picture illustrates how important forest elephants are for seed dispersal (a large number of plants exclusively depends on them!): a lot of seedlings sprouting from old elephant dung.

2nd picture shows water-filled footprints, probably an important resource for species breeding in these ephemeral and tiny ponds.
