Fog rolled in to help hide the elephants as we finally approached the elephant enclosure.

Various forms of food dispensers lined the border of the elephant enclosure. The effect was to draw the elephants closer to the viewing public.

A woman selfied herself by the elephant enclosure, while kids played nearby. That same elephant still waited by the food dispenser. In the distance, another elephant began to vanish into the fog.

More information was on display inside a warm, dry enclosure. Life size photos of elephants allowed one to judge one's size against an elephant without risk.
