Comments / pictures

The rains failed in 1976 and as a result there was a terrible drought in
Amboseli. Many elephants died that year particularly young ones. Mabel's
little calf died when he was about seven months old. By this age calves have
to supplement their milk diet with vegetation, but there simply wasn't
anything that the small calves could eat. More than half the calves born that
year died.
