Charles was aggressively hungry. I could feel plenty of warm air coming out of his trunk as he hurriedly grabbed green, fleshy vegetables from my hand. The skin around his trunk was as tough as leather, I was amazed with how fast it coiled and the strength it exhibited. Charles Hamukungu is a male African Savannah Elephant that was born wild in May 2011, he was abandoned by his family after a broken leg at the Queen Elizabeth Park and transferred to the Uganda Wildlife Centre where he currently resides. He is a 10 year old happy and healthy Elephant.
