The elephants in Tsavo are often referred to as "Red Elephants" as they do appear red sometimes. The color of their skin is no different than that of other elephants, it is due to the red soil of Tsavo that covers these elephants during their dust baths.

Popular legend of Tsavo ‘The Man Eaters of Tsavo’ deals with the mysterious murders of the workers who were appointed for the construction of a bridge here. It was later found out that the absconding workers were dragged out of their tents and were killed by a devil in the shape of a Lion, hence called as the Man Eater!
