Taiping Zoo (13) : Elephant

One of the animals that I love to spend time looking at inside the zoo are the elephants... Notice the little baby elephant and the toddler elephant?

What caught my attention is the pair of the lovely mother elephant & baby elephant..

Mother & baby elephant standing side by side.. Eating grass?

The baby elephant was thirsty.. He bent down & sucked the water from the pool with his little baby trunk.

The baby elephant blowed the water sucked with his trunk into the mouth ( Well, well... elephant's trunk is not a drinking straw. The elephant will fill the trunk with water and then use it as a hose to pour the water into the mouth).

Mummy Elephant playing with baby elephant.. teasing the baby elephant with her trunk.

Baby elephant manja back with his mother.. touching the mother elephant with his baby trunk.

Loving and affectionate elephants..

Mmmmm... on closer view... Aiyak, the baby elephant even though still young, has so much wrinkles liao :P Kulit berkedut-kedut... Definitely need to apply lotsa lotsa body lotion, hahhaa.... Anyone want to sponsor body lotion for this cute little baby elephant? ;)

chen~
large sensitive animals
It has been discovered that elephants can communicate over surprisingly long distances via low frequency infrasound, a sub-sonic rumbling which can travel through the ground farther than sound travels in the air. This can be felt by the sensitive skin of an elephant's feet, which pick up the resonant vibrations in much the same way as the flat skin on the head of a drum. We have only been able to discover this new aspect of elephant social communication thanks to breakthroughs in audio technology, which can pick up frequencies outside the range of the human ear.
