Are there elephants in the desert?

The Namib Desert , in Namibia, is home to what is considered the largest species of elephants in Africa. The valley formed by the Hoanib River and its tributaries is the preferred place for these pachyderms, although they are difficult to see given their elusive and nervous nature. However, its prodigious memory and the enormous sensitivity to detect and extract hidden water in the bed of dry rivers allows it to enable numerous watering holes, in which the rest of the animals that live in the desert quench their thirst throughout the year. Therefore, the contribution of elephants to the preservation of these ecosystems is decisive. The exaggerated proportions that this species presents could be due to the harsh living conditions to which it is exposed, which only allow the strongest to survive and increases mortality among puppies.
