The Young Elephant from Africa

The Young African Elephant

When a baby elephant (weighing from a hundred to a hundred and fifty kilogram’s and standing a meter and a half high) is born in the African bush, the entire herd of elephants greets his arrival with joyful trumpeting.

For the first few days, although the baby elephant is able to walk, the young elephant prefers to stay hidden under his mother’s stomach or hind legs from where he can reach back with his trunk to suckle from one of her teats.

If the baby elephant is reluctant  to stir when the herd begins to move, all the mother elephant needs is some prodding from his mother’s trunk. Sometimes, however whenthe baby elephant becomes unruly; then his mother pricks him with her tusks and pushes him with her head. If that doesn’t succeed, the baby elephant gets a spanking with his mothers trunk, of course. These are just the simple day today lessons a young elephant needs to learn when the days go by.

During their journeys, the young elephant winds his trunk and his mother’s tail, not from fear of getting lost, but to enable him to keep pace.  You fidn that during the elphant train, a herd of elephants can walkmiles and miles of land looking for water and fresh grass as well.

Friendly rivalry among young elephants of the same age, who meet when the herds stop at water holes, is a natural outlet for their exuberance. The outcome of this ‘skirmish’ is a spectacular fall into the water.
The elephant trumpeting to a mother summons the heard. Her threatening tusks and swinging trunk ward off an attack on her baby elephant by any hungry predator. The baby elephant find protection by hiding under her mothers big body

While the female Asian elephants were not blessed with beautiful dangerous tusks, it’s the dangerous male elephant which is responsible for many of the dangerous attacks in Asia.
