With no fresh water coming in to Hwata pan, the spoilt elephants have to make do with what’s there. Good muddy water. This doesn’t impress Snorkel.
Try as he may to carefully suck water just off the surface, he still ends up with a trunk full of muddy water. Not the sort of water he’s been spoilt with and squirts it out.
But the only animals to blame for the all the water being muddy are the elephants themselves. And especially the bulls who can’t resist a mud wallow and mud bathing.
