Two magnificent African elephant heads are up close together in this black and white photograph. We can see their heads, part of their ears, trunks, and entire tusks. That gives a more intimate feeling for the elephants in this black and white photograph. Both massive heads take the whole space of the photograph facing you.

This close-up photograph of the two elephants in fine art black and white we took in the Etosha National Park. One of the largest Parks in Africa. Being that, it is 22 935 square kilometers / 14251 square miles large. Its eastern territory is by endless silvery-white sand. While the rest of the park envelopes with scant shrubs, grassy plains, and hilly mopane woodlands. In the portrait of ‘Two African Elephant Heads,’ you can see the trunks. A key point about elephants is that you can tell a lot about them at their tusks. Elephants tusks never stop growing. Thus, the bigger the tusk, the older the elephant. Both female and male elephants grow tusks. Comparatively, amongst Asian elephants, only the males grow tusks. African elephants also spend a lot of time eating. They will spend between 12 – 18 hours a day eating. As a result, they tend to drop many feces along the way.

African elephants, Loxodonta africana, are in the category vulnerable in the IUCN list.
