Mud Pack Skin Care When It Rains

Asian Elephants are native to forests of India, Myanmar, and Nepal. In the wild, most of their time awake is spent eating, so an environment where they can constantly be feeding had to be made. A main point to look for is the dirt baths they do to protect their skin. In addition to their enjoyment of sunny days, they are particularly excited when it rains and the ground becomes muddy. They will roll around and get mud all over their bodies. This is a great opportunity that can only be seen on rainy days.
