They are often seen meandering gracefully through the plains of Africa, but this baby elephant was keen to up the speed in his daily stroll as he showed off his breakdancing moves.
South African photographer Graeme Mitchley, 43, of Kruger National Park, captured the calf’s show-stopping routine.
But the baby, part of a herd walking the main road leading to the Lower Sabie camp, was displeased to see Mr.Mitchley and tried to intimidate him with his floor-filling movements.
Mr. Mitchley said: ‘The elephant looked like it was doing a little dance for me; it kept me entertained for the whole trip.
‘The road was busy with other tourists, so I didn’t have much room to maneuver, but I could tell the elephant wasn’t pleased with my presence.
‘He tried to intimidate me with various moves. If it were an older elephant, I would definitely be out there.
‘These teenage elephants bark more than bite – they flap their ears and shake their heads.
‘I don’t know if this elephant will show me that he was going to sit on me, but it sure was fun.’
The hilarious sequence shots were taken on the H4-1 in Kruger National Park – the main road from Skukuza to Lower Sabie, two of the biggest camps in Kruger, one of Africa’s largest game reserves.
