African Elephant (Loxodonta africana)  My favorite. Greeting an elephant. I don't move from my spot. The elephant comes as close as a several meters. Of course, as long as he does not show signs of aggression. As long as he does not suddenly attack; he is unbelievably fast. In 2007, one male elephant attacked me, but thankfully my friend stepped on the gas. There were several long seconds when his tusk was less than a meter away from my chest. Remember this well. Some experiences aren't meant to be repeated...
