Tails serve as effective non-lethal weapons against pests.

A mammal’s waving tail forms a curtain of air that can discourage most mosquitoes from landing — and blows the pests away.

f you focus directly on the skin of an African elephant, you can transport yourself far away from the 11-foot-tall beast. Disregard the tusks, the flapping ears, and 20-inch-wide feet. Once you’ve zeroed in on its fissured hide, you might as well be looking at the dried flecks of mud in an ancient lakebed or the cracked surface of Mars.

When it comes to friendship, we can learn a lot from elephants, especially long term residents of Elephant Nature Park Jokia and Mae Perm. Approaching their 17th year of friendship, Mae Perm and Jokia have the longest running friendship at Elephant Nature Park and although friends have come and gone, they have always stayed together.

Assam has the highest population of Asian elephants in India. In some districts, drastic loss of forests is forcing them into constant interaction in human habitations. While for the most part, a reverence for the elephant is still very much alive, forced contact can and will turn dangerous. Come with us to Assam to understand the issues.

Today we introduce Dalah to get into her new pool when the temperature is warmer in the afternoon. At first, she is wondering and doesn’t have any confidence to take a step. Finally, she enjoys dipping her body in the deep and spends time taking weight off her poor legs. She has so much fun put her head down in the water and use her trunk as a snorkel. We hope to see she can enjoy and relax with the water therapy everyday.
