The pair were spotted by a wildlife photographer in Kenya
AN elephant bugged by an itchy bottom finds the perfect spot to scratch it . . on an old termite mound.
The 30-year-old female’s calf decided to copy her and also had a roll on the rock-hard nest built by burrowing insects at Amboseli National Park, Kenya.
The pair were spotted by wildlife photographer Jeff Sink while he was running a safari trip in Kenya.
He said: “These are African elephants and the herds at Amboseli are some of the largest remaining herds in the world.”
He added: “Amboseli is in southeast Kenya right on the border with Tanzania and its source of year-round water is from Mount Kilimanjaro.
“The elephants live on the sides of Mount Kilimanjaro and stay in the forests at night eating up to 200 pounds of food per night.
“When the sun rises they come down the mountain and merge into incredible herds of up to 500 elephants before proceeding to the marsh to drink and play.
“As the day begins to wane they begin to march back to the mountains.

“On the way they throw dust up in the air and onto their backs as a way to minimise annoyances from bugs.
“The elephants have their favourite old termite mounds where they stop and give themselves a good scratching.
“I’ve never seen elephants just sit atop of a mound and scratch their butts like these elephants did.
“I was only 30ft away from the elephants and it was amazing to see.”
