Photo of two elephants in Malaysia

While in Malaysia, our friends kindly took us to the Kuala Gandah National Elephant Conservation Centre, which cares for homeless elephants. You can feed the elephants fruit, which they take out of your hand with their trunks. The best part was being able to bathe the baby elephants. The elephants were led into the water down the ramp, and we waded in after them (up to our waists) and rubbed sand into their backs. The temperature was warm so the water was comfortable, and the elephants seemed to enjoy having their backs rubbed. It was an amazing experience, and if you have a chance to visit the elephant sanctuary, I'd recommend it. It was hard to take photos of the animals because they were often behind barriers or surrounded by their carers or other visitors. In this photo, I've zoomed in on two elephants side by side to fill the frame with the elephants without any obvious human presence.
