Elephants in a rush

report written By

There are two glorious types of elephants of elephants, which is the African elephants and the Asian elephants. Surprisingly the two species are entirely different. The African elephants are more aggressive than the Asian ones, because they refuse to be tamed, and impressively both male and female have tusks. At 2000-4000 kg the African elephants is the largest 4-footed animal on earth. African farmers hate the African elephants, because thy damage their crops. When the African farmers catch a glimpse of one of the elephants, they kill them. The Asian elephants carry heavy labor in many countries, so they are domesticated. Since most Asian elephants are domesticated, few remain in the wild. In India, the Asian are royal animals.

African and Asian elephants communicates with infrasound. While the females call mating songs, they roam. Interestingly, only females do the communication. Mating songs can last up to thirty minutes. Surprisingly, mating songs are always the same, because then the male will remember the sound, and come to her. People hear ten octaves, and before 1988 we, who are intelligent, did not know that elephants can hear two octaves below us. Despite of their infrasonic rumblings families stick together.

When one member of a family is sick, a male or female calls for help. A rush of relatives will come immediately for help.  The relatives, who came in a rush, will give the ill member leaves, branches, and berries to raise him or her to his feet.  Throughout all of this elephants help demonstrate close kindship ties.  All families exists out of females only, except for the male calves.  The males stays with their mothers until they are old enough to wander alone.  Families are one-parent families, because there are just females.  Thankfully, because of their size, elephants have few enemies, so little protection is needed.  The scream of a calf will let a rush of supporting relatives come for help.
