Early life care shapes African elephants' future

"Early maternal care in the first two years of life actually affects an elephant's survival over 40 years - it has long lasting consequences," "It is a problem we tend to overlook, unless we are looking at humans: how animals respond over the very long-term to apparently small events that happen in their lives." Prof Lee and colleague in the international team of researchers said inexperienced mums often provided "inappropriate care".


Oohh...we march from here to there, and it doesn't matter where, you can hear us push through the deepest bush with a military air! Haha, I love that Elephant song from the Jungle Book movie!!! :O)

Africa elephants - Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Traditionally, two species were known, the African elephant and the Asian elephant, although some evidence suggests that African bush elephants and African forest elephants are separate species. Elephants are scattered throughout sub-Saharan Africa, and South and Southeast Asia.
