The endangered Asian elephants and mostly the male elephants that have tusks are also following the same fate by poachers from different poaching animal world community. Despite the fact that there are many elephant conservation projects in Africa, Asia and the world at large going on in order to help save the endangered African elephants and the Asian elephants the great men and women who make an animal safari and visit these beautiful dangerous elephant habitats always share the plight of these beautiful animals and also known to be one of the most dangerous animals in the world.
“April 2, 2012. OLIVIA KELLEHER. The Irish Times. Circus worker 'critical' after elephant incident”
If you think its bad manners for your stomach to growl at an unfortunate moment, wait until you hear an elephant stomach growling. You might just think you are in a discotheque and as far as the elephant in the wild means you are welcome in elephant world. Their stomachs make loud rumbling and growling noises that other elephants can hear, which seem to be contented sounds signaling "everything is okay."
One more amazing fact about elephants is that with its entire name in the news around the world, it is one of the top ten most dangerous animals in the world. Going to a safari in Africa just makes you closer to the elephant and with all the sheer size of the elephant when you take close up pictures of the elephant that’s when one realizes the unique characteristics that elephants are unpredictable animals both in the wild and in captivity as well.
While that might be true in part, there are still a few good men and women who know more about the African elephants and the Asian elephant more than the natives of the African Savannah who walk side by side and farm in most of the elephant habitat with tribes such as the nomadic Maasai tribe if Kenya and Tanzania as well. Its all about interest and the love of animals that people get to know about the elephant and what part it has to play in the African ecosystem and as part of the African Savannah food chain.
The only protection the baby elephant can get is from the elephant heard and many of the elephant feeding mothers which will always ward off any male elephants which might want to come near the new born baby elephant. While there are cases of elephants giving birth in captivity, there are recorded moment when an elephant in Balli managed to resuscitate a baby elephant which could not breathe. Despite the fact that there were trained animal experts observing the elephant’s birth, they did not intervene as it was sheer elephants instincts that managed to save the baby elephant.
The male elephants or bulls do not take part in caring for the little elephants when they are born or when they are young. Whether its looking for the mother elephant for milk is just something it learns to locate the tits, if it comes to picking things, the baby elephant just doesn't have the experience to hold, grab or even pick objects but you find with time and with good teachers in the wild especially the mother elephant and the elephant herd to imitate, the baby elephant will only continue to be under the mother elephants body whether on the move or just keeping cool under the protection of the mother elephant as well and grow to be one of the largest elephants in the world.
That being one of the causes of the loss of many elephants in the wild has seen a decline in the number of the biggest elephants or even the oldest elephants in captivity and in the wild as well. Many animal safari tourists in Africa yearn to see big elephants but most of them feel sorry for the baby elephants which are left in the wild as the male and female elephants have been killed as a result of poaching. The elephant orphanage in Nairobi Kenya is just one of the biggest elephant rescue and conservation project which adopts orphaned elephants and later re introduces them in the wild. Many Kenya safari tourists visit this elephant rescue conservation protection center and have a chance to feed baby elephants with milk and also take beautiful amazing elephant photos as well.
Many amazing elephant photographs have been captured and some of the best elephant’s memories carried along with it. For those animal loving safari people that have gone above the rules of the jungle and gone closer to the elephants feeding habitat, they must have heard the deafening elephant’s trumpet warning the intruders to back off otherwise face the elephants powerful trunk with a nice send off from the elephants shark trunks as well.
So the nest time you see an elephant flapping its ears just know it is feeling hot not only because of the weather but from the sheer big appetite which rage from any fruits found in the world whether wild fruits or just ordinary fruits. Elephants consume hundreds of kilos of leaves and grass as well. Where do you think elephants get their big bodies from? Well they just need to maintain their weight and the truth of the matter about elephants is that not all grass leaves and barks of trees which the elephant eats is completely digested, seeds of many fruits and grass sometimes is not digested and the elephant dung most of the time is composed with undigested matter. Many trees and plants are in fact re introduced to the elephant natural habitat as this natural seed dispersal by elephants keeps on maintaining the natural ecosystem once again.
The matriarch is usually the oldest and most experienced female elephant in the herd. The female elephant of the herd decides when and where the elephant herd will eat, where the elephant herd will rest, and where the elephant will travel to look for food pasture and to quench their thirst of a dust birth or a swim. The adult male elephants on the other hand are called bulls. As a matter of fact these adult male elephants rarely don’t live in the African elephants herd. Once these huge male elephants become teenagers, they leave the herd. Only after these majestic elephants become adults will they make an elephant train to visit other herds in the forest and their natural habitat only for short periods of time to breed.
