Sorry Daniele. Thank you.

You're welcome Ruby. But if you understood my comment and these elephants are indeed from the Masai Mara, they do not belong to the Captive Animals mission.

Hi patty! The Masai Mara is called a reserve as the animals in there are protected. However it is a large non fenced area and the animals are free to roam in an and out, including into the neighboring Serengeti with which its form a continuous system.
Ruby, the scientific name for these elephants is Loxodonta africana. Thank you for adding it so that the spotting can leave the Unidentified list.

Nice elephants Ruby; were they in some sort of resereve or free? If they were in a reserve you may consider scrolling to the top of the page (to where it says "missions") and including this spotting in the "captive animals" mission.
Greetings and great picture =)
