Itigi-Sumbu thicket

WWF Abstract

Crawling on your belly may be the best way to move through the Itigi-Sumbu Thicket. Its shrubs grow so densely that almost no light reaches the ground. Humans may have a hard time moving through it, but not elephants. With their tough hides and large size, they can plow through the dense shrubs, which bounce back into place behind them as if these giant mammals had never passed.
