A Thai a mahout (elephant caretaker) with his elephants at an elephant nature park in Northern Thailand
A mahout is an elephant rider, trainer, or keeper. Usually a mahout starts as a boy in the family profession when he is assigned an elephant early in its life. They remain bonded to each other throughout their lives. I took this image at an elephant nature park in Northern Thailand. We had here the chance to feed the elephants and also to bath them in the nearby river. Amazing animals!
