All alone? No herd-buddies?

Magnificent creatures, I love images of them. TFS!

Most bulls are often alone and will only join a herd for breeding. Young bulls are also evicted from herds, and this one is a likely candidate.
Seeing that you like them- here's another- BIG fella. - Pilansberg National Park

Wow, thanks! Indeed, a very big fella! Magnificent! I don't think I knew that the bulls are mostly solitary. Hm, interesting. Thanks, learn something new every day!

Yes. Elephant herds are typically under the charge of a matriarch with her sisters, daughters and their youngsters. Male offspring old enough to mate are generally driven out to find their own way.

Western sitatunga. If it were not a zoo animal, whenever would I have a chance to photograph it?

I knew about the matriarch part but didn't realize the ladies pushed the gents out of the group. Puts an entirely new perspective on images of solitary elephants.
