A wildlife photographer captured a female elephant exposing her b.reasts while walking with her adorable baby and the rest of the herd.
South African wildlife photographer Renata Ewald captured these funny images of the unusual elephant in Kruger National Park.
Mrs Ewald, 51, said: ‘I spend a lot of time in Kruger, and I have never seen anything like this before.
‘I came across this breeding herd in the early hours of the morning and stopped a safe distance from them to enjoy their presence.
“I immediately noticed this particular female, with her baby and super-large b.reasts that you could see from the sides.”
She said: ‘It was amazing to watch, and I just captured the moment her full ‘double d’ b.reasts were showed up right in front of me.
‘People have been stunned by this female elephant’s and the human’s identical-looking b.reasts – I know the elephant’s b.reasts are in the front, it’s amazing to see the comparison look the same.
‘It was a lightbulb moment in my head, and I thought ‘she looks like a woman’.
Ms Ewald said: ‘I love elephants, and I’m always excited to see them – especially the breeding herds with all the young ones.
‘This particular sight was extraordinary, as they seemed so happy and full of joy.
‘I hope these photos will help people show more respect for elephants – they carry their cubs for 21 months, and then people sl.aug.hter them disrespectfully for their tusks.
‘It really breaks your heart.’
She added: “They are brilliant animals with strong family bonds – they have many comparisons to humans and should be shown the same level of respect.
