The elephant was photographed by a trap camera in the Knysna forest, SA National Parks (SANParks) said on Thursday 13 January 2014

"The footage includes photographs of an elephant whose tusks, trunk and legs are visible, but unfortunately the forehead shape as well as sex organs and ear-notch patterns are not visible for identification purposes," SANParks spokesperson Nandi Mgwadlamba said.

She said this was significant because the Knysna forest is one of the few forests where elephants can be found.

The elephant was photographed on 6 November, but the picture was downloaded only on Thursday, 13 January 2014.

The camera was placed in the Knysna forest for leopard research by the Landmark Foundation, she said.
