Mahouts ride their Asian elephants (Elephas maximus) home after a thorough cleaning, Nepal<br />
<br />
The Narayani River is shallow so elephants need not show off their swimming skills. In the right conditions they are excellent swimmers, with good buoyancy in their big bodies, powerful legs, and built-in snorkels.<br />
