This elephant carcass is about 1 week old. Decay rates vary greatly depending on humidity, scavenger abundance and soil type. Zakouma National Park, Chad.

These juvenile elephants were part of a herd of 64 elephants that were killed in Zakouma National Park, Chad. All the elephants were killed in a very small space (half the length of a soccer pitch), suggesting that it was the work of experienced, professional poachers, who first shot the matriarch.
